Thanks for stopping by my writing website.

I worked as an economics consultant for many years, most recently as Principal, before I began to write fiction.

My short stories have appeared or will appear in Calyx, Juked, Salt Hill, The Florida ReviewThe Normal School, and other journals. I’m currently at work on a number of stories that explore aspects of Indian culture and emerge in a variety of narrative forms.

I received a Masters in Fine Arts degree from the Program for Writers at Warren Wilson College and also hold a Ph.D. in Finance from the Eli Broad College of Business, Michigan State University. My short stories have twice been nominated for a Pushcart Prize, by Juked and Salt Hill. I am a recipient of the Gish Jen Emerging Writer’s fellowship by the Writers’ Room of Boston, and I’ve attended the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference as a general contributor. There. That was my awards and recognition paragraph.

I grew up in south India and live in Boston.
