Born in the picturesque city of Chandigarh, I am a graduate of PEC University of Technology in Electrical Engineering. For as long as I can remember, I have had an affinity for literature. I was 9 when I read my first book, The Naughtiest Girl by Enid Blyton, and by the age of 12, I wanted to be JK Rowling.

My book, Top 5 Reasons PR is Important, is written to have a concise understanding of what “Public Relations” is and “How” it can be leveraged effectively for a business. It’s designed for brands, small or large, looking to build or manage their PR strategy.

This book happened to me! I was a Virtual Intern at Tiffany Terrell LLC, Georgia, USA. Sometime near the end of 2014, Ms Tiffany, the owner of the firm, shared her idea for a book she really wanted to write. I was more than happy to collaborate with her on the project in any which way possible. So started the nine-month long journey in which I wrote parts of the book, detailing on the direction provided by Ms Tiffany. After multiple iterations and feedback sessions from Tiffany’s clients, my sister, our friends, the book was a released in the summer of 2015. It is available for purchase on Amazon. I have also designed the cover of the book. It is not less a dream come true.

I love writing poetry and fiction. I was the Editor-In-Chief of the English Editorial Board of my graduation college and remained connected with writing through the numerous magazines published annually. Apart from writing, I dabble in singing and reading. The most beautiful book that I’ve ever read and absolutely recommend is Tell The Wolves I’m Home. Teenage angst has never been better handled.

One of my teachers is compiling an anthology on social discrimination and he’s invited me to submit a story. I’m really looking forward to doing that. However, that’s not all that I intend to do. I do have some fiction novel ideas which I play around with now and then.
