Writer in residence: Shankari Chandran

When Shankari Chandran took time out of her career as a lawyer to have her fourth child, she turned her hand to writing in between baby feeds and family demands. This pastime has turned into a new career and Shankari’s latest novel is Chai Time at Cinnamon Gardens published by Ultimo Press. It follows on from her brilliant first novel The Barrier, a futuristic fast-paced thriller published by Pan Macmillan that has been compared to the works of Michael Crichton and Matthew Reilly.
