Since 2002, I have had the good fortune to read and review books for India Currents Magazine. Most of the books I’ve reviewed for IC have been written by South Asian authors, many of whom unfortunately never enjoy the publicity that the best seller lists provide. In the past 15 years, I’ve learned much from those authors regarding culture, perspective, and globality.
In September 2013, Booklist Magazine, a publication of the American Library Association, hired me to review chapter books, middle grade books, and young adult books. This job has been great fun because today’s books for youth cover absolutely everything imaginable.
And since January 2014, I’ve had the great pleasure to not only serve as a reporter for The Rolesville Buzz but also as the newspaper’s book reviewer. I’ve primarily concentrated on North Carolina authors or books set in North Carolina as the state is teeming with writers of all kinds. UPDATE: Due to editorial restrictions, I’ve pulled my book reviews for the time being.
