Fiction author, blogger and freelance international journalist Anju Gattani has published cover stories, fiction, feature, news, travel, parenting and perspective pieces.

Hi Story Tellers and Story Lovers.

Story telling in its simplest form is an emotional ride. An experience where we have a chance to escape reality and plunge into another's world.

My trip to Chicago last week was an eye opener. In meeting department heads of TV and Film at Northwestern University and Columbia College I learned that true story tellers are true listeners. The heads of these department Read more of this blog post »
