I was born in Colombo, Sri Lanka and later moved to live in London. I currently live in the mountains of southern Spain.
I studied Chemistry then Law at Bristol University, and Fine Art at Central St Martins. I’ve been a terrible trainee solicitor, a very bored editor of law books and a blissfully contented bookseller, writing and making art along the way.
My novella LANTERN EVENING won the Gatehouse Press New Fictions Prize 2016 and was published by Gatehouse Press.
My novel BEAUTIFUL PLACE is published by Salt Publishing in the UK and Pan MacMillan India in South Asia.
My short stories have been published and broadcast on BBC Radio 4. My story RED SARI is published in the textbook Context 1 and taught in schools in Sweden. My story IN THE MOUNTAINS is published in BEST BRITISH SHORT STORIES 2020.
