Kailash Srinivasan is an Indian-born author and thankful for it, for the endless yarns that spring out of its womb. His interests are varied, including writing (fiction, screenwriting etc) music, acting (theater), and traveling. Traveling more so, if only he had enough dough. He holds a Masters in Writing from Macquarie University, Sydney, and went into debt studying creative writing. Now who does that? Though things are gradually falling into place now, for the longest while he wondered if he will ever get published. And now he hopes to win some (lots, actually) writing awards, and spend the rest of his life at Writing Residencies, writing and teaching.
He published his first book, What Happened to That Love, at the end of 2010, which was also his thesis at writing school. The book that was longlisted for the Vodafone Crossword Book Award, is a collection of 13 stories set in India and Australia, exploring life, death, love, ache, greed, hope, destiny, alienation, and the nature of rural and urban life, and the changes that come to us all. His second book will be released by Gyaana Books later this year (2012). He will soon be a part of a literary anthology to be e-published by O&S Publishing. Apart from this, some of his work has appeared in Urban Shots – Love Collection (GreyOak publishers), Bluslate Magazine, Chicken Soup Books, and O&S Publishing.
He lives in the beautiful, quaint city of Pune, and works as Communications Manager at an automotive design school. He also freelances as a copy and content writer. He can be reached by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
