I’m a children’s author and my books are popular with children of all ages. I’ve written picture books, chapter books, short stories and mystery novels. Wonderfully funny characters get into hilarious adventures and crazy escapades in these stories.
I write in English and my books have been translated into several Indian languages including Hindi, Tamil, Marathi, Bengali, Assamese and Urdu.
I am currently based in Bengaluru, India and when I’m not reading or writing, I bake, eat chocolate, walk and play bridge.
“Asha Nehemiah is some kind of a magician. She writes with a kind of flair which reminds you of so many things you have read in your childhood and yet with a kind of freshness which makes you want to change the pages of the books quickly.”
“Asha Nehemiah is a much loved author in our house. Going by the number of times she’s mentioned in the comments of other posts, she’s a favorite with other ST-ers as well.”
