About

Hi. I’m Nilam.

Last summer, I spent a few weeks at Huddersfield Library as a Writer-In-Residence. I am now writing a book based on my conversations with staff and patrons. You can read some extracts here.

This means that my novel about a superstitious Indian scientist has taken a back seat, but I will go back to him soon…

I also write a blog dedicated to my friends and family, and anyone else, who is feeling homesick for the UK.

I live in Yorkshire, and have lived and worked in the Philippines, Maldives and Sri Lanka for development organisations. I write, I edit, I research (PhD qualified), I teach and I train – it’s all on my website. Feel free to get in touch.
