The Burnt Offering

Author Name: Cindy Pereira | Format: Paperback | Genre : Literature & Fiction | Other Details

Included in this collection are some stories written more than 20 years ago and some that are fairly recent. Each story tells a different tale; some are humorous, some are witty, some carry a mild streak of pain and some just tell a simple tale with no frills attached. The characters in each story are normal people who lead normal lives, with successes, regrets, triumphs, humiliations, grudges and a little ‘shedding of baggage’ along with a healthy dose of laughter, sorrow and mystery. They make for quick reading on any day, any month of the year. In some stories, the writer pokes fun at herself. In others, she just relates mundane incidents, finding a silver thread of wonder in them. And there are those that you would call yarns – the type that are told around crackling campfires, late in the night under the distant stars.

Cindy Pereira

Cindy Pereira, born and raised in Bangalore, India, prefers to be called a storyteller rather than a writer. Her love for telling stories began at a very young age when her dolls became the actors for scripts created in her mind. At one point in time, as a little child, she had a book filled with self-drawn paper doll cut-outs – each an actor or an actress in her personal fantasy stories. This turned to writing in middle school when she and her best friend hand wrote stories for each other, complete with binding and cover pages. Some of her stories sparked out of dull journeys home from work and some are just yarns. Cindy has a Master Degree in English Literature and loves to trek, run and just ‘catch the sun.’ She is married and lives with her husband in Bangalore.
