Hema Nair

HEMA N. NAIR grew up in India where she worked as a journalist for The Times of India, and later, The Indian Post in Bombay (now Mumbai). In 1989, she won the Best Woman Journalist of the Year award for outstanding writing on Indian women's issues. She moved to the U.S. in 1990 and has been working as a freelance writer. Her work has appeared in Ms., The New York Times, The Philadelphia Inquirer, and The Women's Review of Books. Her fiction has been published in various literary magazines and has been anthologized in two collections of South Asian fiction. She now lives in Ewing, New Jersey, and is trying to juggle her writing with the demands of bringing up her baby daughter — and she has no compunction stating that the toddler wins hands down every time.
