Ritika had always wanted to read a quest novel or five that incorporated elements from her ethnic background. However, she didn't find one that hit the right spot. So she decided to write one herself. After all, one writes the kind of thing one like to read most!
She has a postgraduate degree in English literature from the University of Mumbai, where she toyed with fiction writing for the first time. It took a long time for her to gather the courage to open up about her writing.
