Deepti Menon

Words have always played a vital role in my life. Short stories, poetry, humorous pieces or full-length novels... I love them all! Having been an Army brat and later wife, as well as a teacher, I was immensely lucky to have travelled across our country. My first book was titled 'Arms and the Woman' and took a light-eyed dekko into my life in the Army. A book of poems followed, and finally, I waded into the likes of a psychological thriller that I called 'Shadow in the Mirror'. And yes, words still fascinate me!
