Let’s start with a fun fact: Bindiya speaks eight languages. One of them is her mother tongue, Tamil. Her favorite is Arabic, which she learned to read and write while growing up in Dubai, UAE. English is her first language.
She kick-started her writing career as a defense and aerospace journalist in Bangalore, India. After eight years of that, she decided to go over to the dark side: marketing for a multinational corporation in the U.S. So, she packed her bags and moved to California, where she now happily spends her evenings writing and the weekends camping in the California wilderness (where she also writes) with her husband and the baby-dog.
