So to the blurb:

“Preethi Nair worked as a management consultant but gave it up to follow her dream and write her first book, Gypsy Masala. Having been rejected by a number of publishers, she set up her own publishing company and PR agency to publish and promote the book. Working under the alias of Pru Menon, Preethi managed to gain substantial coverage and after two years of a roller coaster journey, she managed to sign a three-book deal with HarperCollins. She won the Asian Woman of Achievement award for her endeavours and “Pru” was also short listed as Publicist of the Year for the PPC awards.”

Pru, my alter-ego didn’t win, thank God, as it would have been difficult to thank the various parts of myself: author, marketing, PR, editorial, sales who it had been a pleasure to work with. Anyway back to the story…

Preethi went on to set up Kiss the Frog, a company that takes storytelling into organisations. She is also on the faculty at various Business Schools teaching creativity and storytelling for personal leadership.”

Well then I went-off piste …..I had this crazy idea to put a show on and having never acted before (not even at school) I hired a theatre in the West End and wrote, produced and acted in a one woman show called Sari: the whole five yards.” 

Lockdown happened and after much homeschooling, I wrote my first children’s book.

Currently, I have just finished “Unravelling,” my fourth novel out September 2024.

I continue to teach Creativity and Storytelling for Leadership and speak on resilience, overcoming obstacles and big picture thinking.
