Dear Friends,

I wish to share my dream with you, and what I consider to be my life’s work. Over the last seven years, I’ve given birth (not to a baby as my mom hoped) but to a work of fiction, now sold to Speaking Tiger Books (

My debut novel, The Yard, was submitted to numerous literary agents all over the world, and was thankfully accepted by Renuka Chatterjee, formerly Penguin Books India) who submitted it to my current publisher. We anticipate the book would be launched in March 2016 in New Delhi.

The novel is set in Trinidad, and the plot evolves around the adoption of an abandoned boy into an Indo-Muslim familial compound on the island against the wishes of some. The work straddles that sweet spot between literary and commercial fiction.

I invite you to be part of my journey; simply subscribe to my mailing list to read about my path to publication and follow the launch and tour in India. (
