Corporate employee-turned-writer out with thriller

Brinda S Narayan

Bengaluru-based author Brinda S Narayan recently released her second novel ‘No Trespassing’, a crime thriller.

“’No Trespassing’ is an outcome of the place I live in with of course exaggeration and dramatisation; it emerged out of a mind wandering behind the confines of a gated complex,” she says about her latest book.

With a BA in Economics from Wellesley College and an MA in Communication from Stanford University, she gave up her 15-year corporate career to become a full-time writer. Her first book is ‘Bangalore Calling’, published in 2011.

She says, “The idea of writing is not alien to me. After my Master’s, I did want to embark on a journalistic career. As the response from the companies I applied took time and I was impatient to start earning, I took up a corporate job. But, at the back of my mind, I always knew that I would become a writer.”

The author also blogs on mid-life, creativity, and books. “ I changed my career at 38 and moved into a creative career. I am intrigued by the manner in which people make a late-life transition,” she quips.

Brinda is looking at writing more books.

“Currently, I am toying with various ideas; I haven’t decided whether it is going to be fiction or non-fiction,” she signs off.
