Author's Bio

My new novel is And Laughter Fell from the Sky, "a stirring contemporary love story about two young Indian-Americans trying to find love and their place in the world, while dealing with the confines and pressures of their culture and their families." I am also the author of two novels for children: Aruna's Journeys and The Moon Over Crete. I've written three nonfiction books. Ela Bhatt: Uniting Women in India is a biography for young people, published in 2000 by the Feminist Press. Utopias in American History is a reference encyclopedia published in 2008 by ABC-CLIO. Poverty and Government in America will be out in 2009 from ABC-CLIO. I am especially interested in opportunities to teach writing to teens.
