Lata Gwalani

I am a writer and I love to play the narrator of human experiences, transporting readers to a place where the lives of strong people with endearing flaws entwine in equally intriguing plots and landscapes. Road to Abana is my third book, after my debut Incognito (a psychological thriller) and Prisoners of Secrets (literary fiction). I enjoyed a career spanning over three decades as a journalist, a columnist, a corporate trainer, before turning into a full-time writer. I have pioneered Leadership through Emotional Intelligence workshops across the country and worked extensively with women in this area. My writings have appeared in The Hindu, The Indian Express, ME Magazine, and Arre, a digital content portal. My stories have richly-drawn characters and thought-provoking plots. My ability to tell an everyday story in a sensuous and evocative style has earned me a devoted readership from across the world. I believe that stories are what make our lives liveable. I teach creative writing and storytelling through my forum called Kathaasis.
