Anju Gattani

A fiction author and freelance journalist, Anju has been published internationally in fiction, feature, news and travel. She was born in India but grew up in Hong Kong and has also lived in Singapore, Australia, New Jersey and Connecticut, USA.

Her curiosity about cultures, the traditions imprinting people’s values and the effect on their lives was the beginning of her journey. Anju observes how fixed impressions, predetermined mind-sets and habit-to-stereotype define people’s thinking patterns and behavior. Anju questions why despite leaps in technology and communication meaning is still lost in translation; her characters explore these concepts.

DUTY AND DESIRE is Anju’s debut novel; she hopes to bridge cultures and break barriers one book at a time. For more about Anju, visit
