I'm a freelance writer, book reviewer, and author.

I am the granddaughter of Malayalam litterateur and children's writer V. Madhavan Nair 'Mali.'

My translation of one his books for children, 'Circus!' has been released by Hachette India, and my original high fantasy novel, 'The Grove of the Sun,' is available as an ebook.

I've been writing for as long as I can remember. Writing has always been, for me, an expression of the imagination. To be drawn into realms of magic and mystery, to bring to life characters and dreams of beauty and joy...add to that a sprinkling of the wondrous, a dash of the supernatural...the imagination is a powerful tool indeed, that can turn the mundane into the radiant.

I was interviewed by The Hindu a few days ago for this feature (published May 3, 2014) on self publishing and Kindle ebooks in India:

Angie Hey Parvathi, I've shared your blog interviews on f.b. but I still can't find you there! I'm just there under my name. I can be found on The Pure Indie Promotion site, Michael w Garza, runs it.

I'm on there. I don't have a book or a blog but I'm there because I love to meet, talk and buy all you guys books! I've loved that this year:-) Its been the best part of 2013, and when I'm asked what books I liked best from this year, it has to be the list of indie authors I've read. You guys rock!!

That's great, Angie, thanks so much! :) I'm very glad you're enjoying the book :)

Angie Hi parvathi, I've finally been able to start reading my Kindle again and I have to say I'm loving your book. Ildanis is such a good character.


Parvathi I think I've only read one book by Nicolas Sparks a long time ago. I haven't read Three Weeks yet. Is that the latest book?


message 1: by Angie

Angie I didn't actually read that skull ring book, it just sat there, so I put it to one side and started Three Weeks with my brother by Nicholas sparks. It's wonderful ,it's all about his life told around a trip he took with his brother. I'm about half way through, and I think I'll have finished by tomorrow night.
