Writer – Poet – Friend

About Me

Hi and welcome! I’m Prasanta, a writer, poet, artist, and mom of three fabulous kids. I write about culture, identity, race, and belonging. Most days, you can find me reading or writing, with a cup of chai in hand. When it’s warm and everything is blooming outdoors, you may find me out on a walk with a camera in hand.

I’m so glad you’re here, friend. I’d love for you to sign up for my monthly newsletter, where I share the latest news from my world, favorite books, writing updates, and other links and information for you that is not here on the website. And I promise to include poetry, because “poetry is a life-cherishing force” (Mary Oliver).
(P.S. Your email is always safe with me and only used for me to communicate with you.)

If you want to know more about me: I was born under an Asian sun, raised in the Appalachian foothills in the southern U.S., and currently reside in the upper Midwest. I hold an MBA and an MPH, and served for many years as a volunteer high school  debate coach. My day job: I work as a Realtor. My other job: writing as much as I can, with a strong side of reading. Feel free to reach out via the Contact page. : )
