Vrinda originally grew up in Arizona, but moved to England in 1999, where she now lives with her husband and their two children. She holds a BA Hons in English with Creative Writing, as well as a Proofreading qualification through the Publishing Training Centre, and offers freelance proofreading, editing and writing coaching services to other independent writers. Her first novel was The Ladder, a story about two friends learning to grow through their difficult childhoods and find the light that lies inside themselves. This was followed by the YA sci-fi/fantasy series The Wisdom, available from all good e-book shops. Vrinda also runs a publishing house for writers with neurological conditions (e.g. autism, ADHD, Tourette’s) called Conditional Publications, and she regularly blogs for the website. On the side, she writes and performs her own music, runs a herbal tea review blog with a friend, and she is an avid tarot enthusiast. Her poem Taking Root was inspired by a miscarriage in October 2015, resulting from a medical check-up that went horribly wrong. It took her over two years to move past the incident, and the baby’s due date—20th June—will be forever honoured in her heart.
