About me

My name is Niranjana Iyer, and I have been writing, publishing, and helping writers get published for over 10 years now. I hold an MBA from IIM Ahmedabad, India, and a Liberal Arts degree from Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, USA. After spending several years in the corporate world, I began writing full-time. I lived in India, the United States, Britain, and Canada before moving back to the United States a few years ago. I now live in California, in the Bay Area.

Here’s an interview on Open Book: Toronto if you’d like to know more about me.
