Author Name: Preeti Shenoy

Preeti Shenoy, née Preeti Kamath, is a painter and writer from Pune, India. During her school years Preeti studied in Kendriya Vidyalayas all over India, due to her father's constant job transfers, and this contact with different cultures and languages may have had an influence in her later interest for Sociology. She started developing her writing skills since an early age, but only considered becoming a professional writer after she created herself a blog in October 2006. The number of page hits on her blog increased day by day, and readers throughout the world suggested her that she should consider publishing her texts.
In 2007 she wrote a couple of articles for MetroScan, a local magazine, and in the beginning of 2008 she was invited to start contributing regularly to the newspaper Times of India. On this same year she wrote articles for Reader's Digest "Joy", and had her articles republished in various other Indian newspapers and magazines. Encouraged by the favorable reception of her first publications, she decided it was time to dedicate to a larger project, and began writing her first book, a collection of narratives based on real life incidents, some of which had been previously posted on her blog in a shorter form. It was launched in October 2008. Her second book, a fictional novel about an Indian girl named Ankita Sharma, was published in January 2011. Her plans are to become a full time writer.
Preeti is a poet, too —her poetry was published in the Sulekha Book Series— and a self taught artist who paints in water colors and oils but also works in mixed media.
In February 2009 she moved with her family (husband and 2 kids) to Norwich, UK, where they lived until October 2010. They relocated back to India and currently she lives in Bangalore.
