Team Kitaab is in conversation with Indian author Shilpa Suraj as a part of the South Asian Women Writers Feature.
For the whole of March, we will be featuring South Asian Women Writers on Kitaab for the whole of March. You can read the editor’s note to know more about this.
Today, we are featuring Indian author Shilpa Suraj. A published author with Harlequin India – Mills & Boon India Collection and Juggernaut, Shilpa’s books have hit both the Hot New Releases and Bestseller lists on Amazon. Her latest novel, ‘Wrong,’ was published by Rupa Publications in December 2022 to rave reviews. She is also part of the Flipped Anthology by Harper Collins and had an audiobook book, Insta Reddy, release with Storytel.
She is, amongst other things, currently working on ‘Frazzled and Fabulous,’ a humorous, true-to-life parenting story that is part memoir and part nonfiction.
An avid reader with a passion for creative writing and storytelling saw her participating in writing competitions at school and dabbling in copywriting for an ad agency as a teenager. Twenty years in the corporate space, including a stint in Corporate Communications for Google, India, and a spell at entrepreneurship all hold her in good stead for her multiple current roles of author, mother and Head of Human Resources & Public Relations at an architecture and interior design firm.
