Sonali Dev's picture

Sonali Dev


Sonali Devs first literary work was a play about mistaken identities performed at her neighborhood Diwali extravaganza in Mumbai. She was eight years old. Despite this early success, Sonali spent the next few decades getting degrees in architecture and written communication, migrating across the globe, and starting a family while writing for magazines and websites. With the advent of her first gray hair her mad love for telling stories returned full force, and she now combines it with her insights into Indian culture to conjure up stories that make a mad tangle with her life as supermom, domestic goddess, and world traveler.

Sonali lives in the Chicago suburbs with her very patient and often amused husband and two teens who demand both patience and humor, and the worlds most perfect dog.

Sonali Dev recommends
Never Meant to Stay (2023)
Trisha Das
"Filled with quirky and lovable characters and sexual chemistry so hot it will leave you breathless. Unputdownable and delightful - a must read!"
The Fairytale Life of Dorothy Gale (2023)
Virginia Kantra
"This might be my favorite Virginia Kantra book! Perfectly emotionally pitched and delicately fierce, I don't know how Kantra manages to capture the 'looking for home inside yourself' spirit of Wizard of Oz in such a contemporary way, but she does. I loved it!"
The Summer of Songbirds (2023)
Kristy Woodson Harvey
"A bright and sweet story that captures the beauty and complexity of female friendship as it grows from childhood connection to a bond stronger than family. Filled with strong women with real struggles, a community that supports one another, and love stories that will warm your heart, this is a tight healing hug of a novel."
