Bite sized fiction and essays. Grab your mug of coffee.
I celebrate life as a writer, mother, and physician. I love coffee, horror novels, and laughing at dog pictures. I have been writing stories since I was a young child – a hobby which I have revived and honed into a part-time career. At last count, I've written over 120 short stories and personal essays across various genres, many of which have been published in the United States, India, and Australia, earning me awards. My first solo-authored book is coming out in early 2022. Please shoot me an email if you would like to collaborate on a project or need editing assistance. You can also pop into my inbox to say hello and meet up for coffee!
