No big words here, just plain old joy of writing and doodling for the child in me.
When I am not doing that, I am mostly devouring a children's picture book.
Either by reading them to my daughter or listening to her read them to me.
You will find me picking children's books at the local library or daydreaming about my picture book with a hot cup of chāha (Indian tea made with cardamom, ginger, mint, tea masala, milk, tea leaves and sugar.)
Born and brought up in India and after
working for a decade as a writer in the advertising industry
in three countries (JWT (India), LEO BURNETT/ARC WORLDWIDE (Malaysia), TBWA/HUNT/LASCARIS (South Africa),
I now live in Chicago with my husband and daughter.
