Neena has always loved books; the marvellous tales they tell; the colourful characters she gets to talk to; the magical places they take her. As a young child, she was as much drawn to reading stories as writing them. As a die-hard book addict, she had this particular affection for words; she loved the way they shaped a sentence, a paragraph, a story. And that’s the reason she started writing – what could be more beautiful than looking at her own creation of different words on a page?
During her growing up and adult years, although, the writer inside her stayed dormant, the reader never quitted. she read extensively, hungrily, and like a maniac.
After her children started school full time, she knew she had to write a story once again.
Once she started her book, there was no going back. Two and a half years later, she completed Tied to Deceit.
Neena lives in Edmonton, Canada with her husband, two children, a highly energetic German Shepherd, and a lifetime collection of her favorite books. She has a Masters in Business Administration.
Neena has served on the 3-member jury panel for one of AFA’s (Alberta Foundation for the Arts) Individual Project Funding program for the year 2018. She has also served on the 3-member jury panel for Manitoba Book Awards 2019 (Michael Van Rooy Award for Genre Fiction).
A hermit at heart, she’s a permissive mother, a reluctant housekeeper, a superb cook, and a hard-core reader.
Tied to Deceit is her debut novel. Kirkus has selected Tied to Deceit for their “18 Great Indie Books Worth Discovering” list.
