About

Hi! I am Sudha.

Welcome!

Thanks for taking the time to visit my site! I’ve been writing nearly all my life, first cutting my teeth on fanfiction. I still love fanfic, and return to it from time to time. I confess that I sometimes end up reading, recommending and creating fanfic when I should be writing! I love books, anime, coffee, chocolate, manga, Beatles music, and dogs – not necessarily in that order.

I’m now working on getting my own writing out there. My first book is out now. I’ve always been a bookworm. I was the type to hide books between the pages of my textbooks in school. Or secretly read under my desk during class. And then get caught and punished. #NoRegrets When I’m not writing, I’m usually blogging, reading or trying out strange online recipes on my Air Force officer husband and playing with my son. I’m now working on my first novel – a paranormal thriller about an ordinary girl caught in a situation beyond her control.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. I know nothing about India or Indian mythology. Can I still read your books?

Yes! Most of my stories are based on Indian mythology, but they can be enjoyed by casual readers. When required, they include explanations of the myths and legends I reference.

2. Where did you get the idea for Dark Things?

It started as a series of posts on my blog, mostly because I was so annoyed by the way Indian mythology was treated on Supernatural, a show I enjoy watching. I decided to write what I wanted to read—modern retellings of the myths and legends I grew up with and loved. The stories got a good response, so I continued with my year-long ‘Indian mythology flash fiction project’, as I called it. When I was done, I decided to publish the best of them in an anthology. And the rest is history!

3. Why do you write fanfiction?

It’s a great way to stretch your writing muscles. Some of the first stories I seriously wrote were fanfiction of questionable quality, which I’m glad has now been lost to time.

4. What are you working on next?

Like any writer, I have several ideas brewing at the same time. I’m currently planning out a paranormal romance, while editing the first draft of my paranormal thriller. Sign up to know when they drop!
