Vedashree Khambete-Sharma is the author of the comic novel THERE MAY BE AN ASTERISK INVOLVED (Hachette India) and the creator of Avantika Pandit, the sassy, crime-curious reporter who stars in the comic thrillers SWEAR YOU WON’T TELL? (HarperCollins India) and FATAL MISTAKES (Harper Black India).
She has a Bachelor’s degree in English Language & Literature, a post-graduate diploma in Communication Management and an uneasy sensation when she refers to herself in the third person. She has freelanced for several reputed Indian publications, hosted a parenting podcast called Who’s Your Mommy? and even won a silver medal in Shankar’s International Competition, for a poem titled Mathematics.
Vedashree funds her irresponsible writing habit by working in advertising, and in the course of an 18-year-old career has won numerous Indian and international awards for her copywriting.
She lives in Mumbai with her husband, her daughter and the sounds of traffic.
