Madhavi Mahadevan

Madhavi became a published author when her adventure novel won first prize in the National Competition for Children’s Writing in her late twenties. Until then, she was happy just writing for her own self in her journal – poems, stories, vignettes about her own life and what was happening around her, exploring both herself and the world around her. But that serendipitous win paved the way to a writing life that has included a series of books including the Doppelganger and now The Kaunteyas. Madhavi has been a bookseller, an editor and an advertising copywriter among other things, and each of these has contributed to her craft and helped her grow as a writer.
