Sumana was born and raised in Bengaluru (Bangalore), India where she completed her BSc degree in Physics and Electronics, much to the surprise of her teachers and relief of her parents. She then became the accidental IT consultant, a career that lasted for over a decade. She may have caused the recession of the 2000s but there is no concrete evidence.
Sumana quit her corporate career in 2009 when she moved to UK and resumed her academic and literary pursuits. She is currently a PhD (psychology) research student with University of Derby, and holds a Master of Letters (MLiTT) in Creative Writing from University of Glasgow.
Sumana's preferred genres are horror and psychological thrillers, although some of her short stories are literary fiction.
When she's not writing or reading, she's usually plotting. Or probably reading your mind?
