Sophie Kinsella's Books

Rasika Mahabal works as a software engineer in the Bay Area. Grabbing any sliver of time from her hectic life, she escapes to her writing nook. From journaling, blogging to writing a book - writing keeps her sane.

She has always had her nose in a book and daydreamed about creating her own world someday. She has made up stories in her head for as long as she can remember and has always wanted to be a writer.

She loves reading, travelling, painting, and has a YouTube channel where she reviews books, TV shows and movies, and talks about everything under the sun.
