My name is Meenakshi Reddy Madhavan. I’m an Indian author. I’ve written eight books (published by Penguin, Westland-Amazon and Harper Collins) on all sorts of subjects, including YA and myth fic plus sexy coming of age and short stories. (My latest is called Soft Animal.)

I’ve been on the internet a long time. My first toe in these waters was my blog The Compulsive Confessor which was really popular when blogs were a thing. I’ve just switched up the medium a little bit: from going to a website, to getting my little letters every two weeks (or ten days, I’m not super punctual) right in your inbox.

I live in Berlin with two fat Delhi cats and my German partner. I like to write about living here, but I also like to write about pop culture and books. So it’s a mixed bag. Welcome anyway! Put your bag down and let’s be weird together.
