Lakshmi Iyer has a certificate in creative writing from The Writer’s Studio at Simon Fraser University. She blogs for The Huffington Post. She can be found online on Twitter @lakshgiri and on Facebook.
She is working on her first contemporary women’s fiction tentatively titled Hindsight. It is the story of a woman who believes she has left her past behind only to find it catching up, one nightmare at a time. It is a story of love, redemption and closure.
A mother by adoption and biology, she resides with her husband and children in the Northeast US. On most days, she can be found by the stove serving up hot food. When she is not cooking, she recounts the mundane-ness of her life in startling detail on her blog.
