Roopa Menon grew up in Kerala and migrated to Amchi, Mumbai at the age of ten. Her love for reading was kindled by her grandfather’s library where she passed countless hours poring over a variety of musty smelling, dog-eared books. She believes in learning from the best; the likes of Toni Morrison, Cormac McCarthy, and J. K. Rowling have inspired her to write, and work hard at the craft. A published writer, Roopa’s short stories and poems can be found in Femina, Asian Age, Skyline publications, sulekha.com and sawf.com.
With a masters' degree in English literature and a diploma in journalism, she has worked as a reporter and sub-editor with newspapers such as The Times of India and Mid-day Metro, followed by a stint as a copyeditor in a UK-based publishing house, Routledge India.
When she is not wrestling with the nitty-gritties of life, this self-confessed Sylvia Plath addict also loves watching movies, going for long walks and dabbling in tarot card reading. Currently, she lives in Dubai with her husband working as a copywriter. You can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org
