Saumya Balsari's picture

Saumya Balsari


Saumya Balsari grew up in India and lived in Denmark before moving to Cambridge. A 'drifting maverick' in her words, she gave up foreign language studies, translation and teaching, resumed free-lance journalism and became a humour columnist. Her play for Kali Theatre Company's Futures later developed into the novel The Cambridge Curry Club. Cited by a popular website as one of Britain's leading South Asian women, she is currently working on a second novel and multicultural stories for children.
