Ravinder Randhawa is an acclaimed author and blogger. She was born in India, grew up in leafy Warwickshire, now lives in London; agrees with the old saying from Samuel Johnson (in a non-gender way of course) when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life. Loves a really good cup of coffee and is currently into Scandi noir.
Ravinder is the author of A Wicked Old Woman, the young adult novel Beauty and the Beast and the highly praised The Coral Strand, the short story collection Dynamite and is currently working on her next novel.
She is also the founder of The Asian Women Writers Workshop (later known as the Asian Women Writers Collective), which published two major collections: Right of Way (1989) and Flaming Spirit (1994). The Collectives work has been archived by South Asian Diaspora Arts Archive (SADAA) here.
A member of PEN International, Ravinder was the Royal Literary Fund Fellow at Toynbee Hall, Queen Marys College, University of London and St. Marys University
