Fantasy author. Writer. Daydreamer.

I am a fantasy author, graphic novelist and journalist based in India. My weakness is to create, retell and listen to stories full of magic, fantasy and non-human thingummies. That and tea of course.

I’ve written seven books and two hundred articles in a career spanning fourteen years and I continue to write. I’m a Charles Wallace India Fellow (UK, 2016) and was shortlisted for Best Writer Award in ComicCon India for The Skull Rosary (2013).

My books include the bestselling series Anantya Tantrist mysteries (HarperCollins), Ghost Hunters of Kurseong (Hachette), and Krishna Defender of Dharma (Campfire). The latter is included in the CBSE Must-read list for schools, is sold internationally and has been reprinted many times.

Upcoming novels
  • How to Steal a Ghost @ Manipal (YA, Juggernaut Books, September 2016)
  • Matsya Curse, an Anantya Tantrist mystery (YA-adults, HarperCollins India, March 2017)
  • Chandaali Chowk, an Anantya Tantrist mystery (YA-adults, HarperCollins India, 2018)
