The Write Edge in Action


In addition to my writing on The Write Edge, below you’ll be able to find links to my recent work as a writer, an editor, and a book reviewer.

I am a columnist for the South Asian magazine, The International Indian.  My column is called “Desi Girl in An American World,” and in it I discuss what it’s like to grow up as the child of South Asian parents in a Western country.
