I’m an Indian American author, editor, and intercessor 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, at a financial institution, 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.

In addition to two MAs and two books, I now have two screenplays to my name. Jericho is an action-packed drama set in Old Testament times; and A Billion Dollar Idea is a life-affirming multicultural story set in present-day Los Angeles.

I hold an MA in Creative Writing (Keele, UK) and one in English (Pune, India). I have also taken the Perspectives class and other Bible-based courses at Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena, and YWAM’s University of the Nations in India, the Philippines, and Kona, Hawaii.

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, and my greatest passions are worship, intercession, and Bible study. I love telling others about Christ, and I also enjoy dream interpretation as a means of helping people hear what God may be saying to them.

Despite my early commitment to Christ, I spent much of my adult life in a barren wilderness. I struggled to find my purpose, and I was depressed as a result. I also suffered with chronic pain and other physical conditions. 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.

Although I still live with physical pain, I am believing God for healing. In the meantime, I have found Christ’s words to the apostle Paul to be true: “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9 NKJV).

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 have participated in numerous life-affirming events over the last two decades in LA and will keep doing my bit to oppose the genocide of our time.
