Sonia Chatterjee

With two post-graduate degrees and eight years of corporate experience, I quit my banking job to become a writer. I pen down my opinion on food, travel, movies, parenting, personal journeys, social issues and publish short stories on my blog soniasmusings.com. I have recently authored a Detective mystery book 'Deal of Death' that was launched as part of the Blogchatter e-book carnival.
