I am an author, freelance writer, and book reviewer. I am also 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 have also contributed to the short story anthology 'Tales from the Hearth.'

My work has been published in Deccan Herald, The Hindu, The New Indian Express, and the Sahitya Akademi journal IndianLiterature, among others.

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

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.
