I am currently an Author, blogger and entrepreneur. I have already written, published and placed on Amazon four books in nine months.
You may be surprised to know that three of these books were actually “cookbooks” based on recipes of my dear mom. But I am no Chef, by training, aptitude or inclination.
I’m actually a corporate lawyer with an LLB (Hons.) degree from the University College London, and a Legal Practice Course (LPC) Diploma from College of Law, Bloomsbury, London.
I had had also my share of corporate law stints in London and Delhi for about three years.
So while I remain somewhat reluctant to be labelled as a “Cookbook Author”, what I need to underline is that one fine morning, I just felt an urge: to not only catalogue my family’s traditional and, what I think, innovative recipes but to also help busy people create cooked meals from scratch, in a jiffy.
I love writing about things that I am truly passionate about.
I believe that my writings should help change people’s lives forever (for good, of course!).
I live in India, in the north, close to the Himalayas. I love the mountains with its temperate climate, snow covered peaks, pine and fir forests, cherry and peach blossoms and the green pastures.
Susan Cain’s book “Quiet: the power of introverts in a world that can’t stop talking” changed my life forever. Her magic words awoke the Phoenix bird inside me.
These words motivated me to write about my own experiences.
The idea is not only to heal myself (which time already has) but also to soothe others with my own experiences. I thereby present to you Quiet Phoenix: An Introvert’s Guide to Rising in Career & Life.
I also run two websites, www.cookinginajiffy.com that I have dedicated to my mother and www.publishwithprasen.com where I share tips on self-publishing and writing.
