A mother of two, she is passionate about travelling and writing. When she finds the time, she writes. Writing is catharsis. She has been writing on a number of online platforms. One of her short stories was recently published in ‘I’m Not In Stories Only’, an anthology of horror stories by Criticspace Journals and Evincepub Publishing. She has also contributed to an anthology of short stories on Caregivers, titled, "No One Fights Alone", published by Criticspace Journals and Evincepub Publishing.
