Namitha Varma is an insomniac writer who spends the mornings yawning in the kitchen, afternoons reading anything she can lay her hands on, evenings sub-editing copies for a newspaper, and nights day-dreaming of what she’d write. She lives in Bengaluru, India, and claims that she is a music enthusiast and an opinionated social observer. She has been a mother to – at various stages of life – four goldfish, four lovebirds, five kittens, and a Labrador, until she found herself a husband to pet for life. Her works have appeared in over 15 literary magazines in India and abroad, and she is especially proud of her publishing credits in Sahitya Akademi’s journal Indian Literature, eFiction India, Hackwriters, MadSwirl, FIVE Poetry, and her microfiction on A Story in 100 Words and 101 Words.
