When she says she literally started writing even before she learned how to read, you know she’s not kidding. Richa penned her first story about a magical crystal ball at the age of six and went on to finish a couple of novelettes by the time she was a teenager (all of which are now tucked away as priceless possessions).
As life would have it, writing fiction did not make it as a career choice, but her passion for writing trickled through all her career choices. Richa began her career as a freelance writer for various publications and websites. In a career spanning over twelve years, she has been a contributing editor, advertising copywriter, technical writer, and an award-winning instructional designer.
However, she could not keep her love for writing fiction at bay for long. She learned the ropes of writing children and young adult fiction from the Institute of Children’s Literature in the United States. She was also recently selected as one of the winners in the nation-wide WriteIndia contest organized by the Times of India group.
Currently, she’s a hands-on mother who doubles up as a full-time author and corporate consultant. She also tweets about writing through her Twitter handle @RichaWriter.
