A writer is by nature a dreamer – a conscious dreamer.Carson McCullers
I am Deepa Duraisamy and I am a writer. Anything you say or do may be used in a story. There, I just read you your literary Miranda rights. Just kidding! Or maybe not?
Writing short fiction is a heartfelt passion. My stories are plucked out of everyday incidents and feature characters one would easily relate to. Intermittently, I dabble with a different genre, but my strength lies in spinning simple tales, dramatic events, featuring twists and turns, tying happenings together in surprising ways!
Every now and then, I pause to reflect on something happening around me, and often write on those pensive (warning: often disillusioned thoughts) that end up lingering in my mind.
Blogger since 2005. Previous address: Deepa’s Kaleidoscope. As of date, 3 of my short stories are published in 3 paperback anthologies. Enthusiastic participant in Blogger forums like Indiblogger, BlogAdda and Blog-a-thon. Finisher at 4 annual A-Z blogging challenges – 2016, 2018, 2021 and 2022.
Professionally, I work as a Data Analytics leader in the corporate industry, a profession that I enjoy for the experiences it gives me, the individuals I interact with and learn from, and for the intellectual ability it helps drive within me, not to forget its financial perks.
Avid reader. Travel lover. Absolute foodie. Beach lover. Enthusiastic singer. Enjoy the outdoors, athletic sports, random conversations, a steaming mug of coffee, the pouring rain, binge watching, and the list goes on.
Blessed to have a beautiful circle of friends and family, people I cherish, treasure and hold close to my heart. I believe gratitude is a way of living. And awareness of self-worth and multi-faceted independence are key.
