Julie & Kishore is an interracial romance loosely based on my life. It follows the story of this couple as they face being in a relationship in New Zealand in the late '80's.
I live in Auckland, New Zealand where I was born and raised. My hubby was born in India and came to
New Zealand in the late '80's. This is the subject of my books, Julie & Kishore and the sequel, Julie &
Kishore: Take Two. Both of these stories are based on our lives, how we, as a couple faced being in an
interracial relationship at that time.
We have now been married for more than twenty years and have two children who are young adults.
We also have a Pomeranian dog called Louie and his best friend is our ginger cat, Donny.
I am currently writing a third book, which has many of the same characters but is a completely different story.
