About Me

Hi and welcome! I’m Prasanta, a writer, poet, and artist, and mom of three fabulous kids. I’m a big fan of reading, coffee, dark chocolate, and writing. Always the writing.

Sign up for quarterly-ish newsletter, where I share what I’m reading, writing, or things I find interesting and amusing.
