RICHA SAMBHY MEDIRATTA

Hello! I’m the author of Goan Chase and I’d like to start by thanking you for stopping by!

I penned my first story about a magical crystal ball at the age of six and went on to finish a couple of novelettes by the time I was a teenager. As life would have it, writing fiction could not make it as a “career” choice. My passion for writing kept trickling through all of my career choices though! I began as a freelance writer and have been a contributing editor, advertising copywriter, technical writer, and an award-winning instructional designer.

When finally, my love for writing fiction started bursting at its seams, I learned the ropes of writing children and young adult fiction (my favorite genre) from the Institute of Children's Literature, United States. Years later, I was selected as one of the winners in the nation-wide Write India contest organized by the Times of India group. And now, I’m an author who shares her journey, and her characters’ journeys, through literary festivals.

Not to forget, I double-up as a hands-on mother to my adorable daughter and am a true-blue book nerd  . I love connecting with readers and authors.Stay in touch with me through Goodreads, Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
