I’m an Indian American author based in Los Angeles. My middle name is a Sanskrit word meaning she who is surrendered to God.

Since migrating from Mumbai in 1999, I have worked at two churches, two publishing companies, a credit union, and as a proofreader at Warner Bros., Burbank. I have edited numerous books and written two of my own: Pioneer Boulevard, a collection of stories set in LA’s Indian community; and The Blessing of Melchizedek, an award-winning 100-day devotional.

I have two feature-length screenplays to show for my two decades in Los Angeles. Jericho is an action-packed drama set in Old Testament times; and A Billion Dollar Idea is a life- affirming story set in present-day LA.

Since I never do things by halves, I also hold two MA’s, one in Creative Writing (Keele, UK) and the other in English (Pune, India). I have taken graduate-level classes at Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena, and courses at YWAM/University of the Nations campuses in India, the Philippines, and Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. I am grateful to have been taught and mentored by some exceptional people, including Rabi Maharaj, author of Death of a Guru.

My essays have been published in American Thinker and The Christian Post. My blog posts can be read here.


On a more personal note, I’ve been a follower of Jesus Christ since the age of six. My greatest passions are prayer, worship, and Bible study. I have the gift of exhortation and enjoy helping others hear God.

Despite my early commitment to Christ, I spent much of my adult life in a barren wilderness. I struggled to find my purpose and was depressed as a result. But the Lord is a great Redeemer! As Psalm 130:7 says, with Him is “full redemption.” Not only has He healed my heart, but He has also called me to help others move from barrenness into their God-appointed destiny of fruitfulness.

As someone who was given the chance to live by not being aborted, I view life as a sacred and precious gift. I believe that every true Christian should be willing to speak up for the unborn, who quite literally cannot speak up for themselves.

I live with chronic pain stemming from an incurable condition affecting my hands. Until God heals me, whether in this life or the next, I live by these words of Christ: “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9).
