So lovely to be featured in the A&O Alumni Yearbook. The decade at Allen & Overy was wonderful – spent with dedicated friends, clients and colleagues.

Thank you so much to the NSW Writers’ Centre and Create NSW for this grant – it has given me the support I need to finish my research and complete The Phantom Limb. I’m hugely grateful. It will make all the difference. http://www.nswwc.org.au/support-for-writers/writing-nsw-grants/ https://www.jonathanodea.com.au/media/media-releases/roseville-author-awarded-funding
But who’s counting. Here is my bio for the Galle Lit Fest: https://galleliteraryfestival.com/participants-2018/shankari-chandran/ And here’s the program: https://galleliteraryfestival.com/fglf-programme-2018/ I’m speaking on Thursday 25th January (with the talented Nayomi Munaweera) and Friday 26th January. Would love to see you there if you’re in Galle. Shanks
I think Emily Maguire just recommended both my books as her favourite feminist reads of 2017. Yep. I have no words, just gratitude. FWF’s Best Books of 2017
Lovely review in The Sunday Times – less than a month to go before the Fairway Galle Literary Festival.
I’m so exited to announce that I’ve been short-listed for the Fairway National Literary Award (2017). The Fairway Galle Literary Festival is very kindly including me in their line up in January 2018. I’ll be in Galle from 24th January to 28th January and looking forward to meeting people. xx Shankari

I’m so excited about this review in The Australian. It’s titled Disruptive Forces and has a picture of Benji (our cavoodle) and me. Too true, when it comes to Benji. http://www.theaustralian.com.au/…shankari…/%20a4310823626c4853e60a96fa9ad4d3d8
I can’t stand the sound of my voice. I will eventually listen to this podcast, in the foetal position. This is me with the Australian Writers Centre – fantastically, the byline (if you read it really fast) makes me sound like Obama’s speechwriter! Thank you so much to the AWC. I couldn’t have finished The […]
Ok, so they spelled my name incorrectly. And I’m from Canberra. However, it’s a great review. Thank you Canberra Weekly. Canberra Weekly
