The Ohio Artist Registry (OAR) is an exciting opportunity for artists to share their work, connect with the creative community, and establish an online presence—all on a free, virtual platform! The OAR encourages artists working in all art forms, throughout Ohio and beyond,  to create a profile, which allows them to better promote themselves and their work. Being listed in the OAR provides artists with new opportunities to share their work with clients, galleries, patrons, and audiences. A listing in the OAR does not confer an endorsement, approval, or verification by the Ohio Arts Council.
For more information, contact Kathy Signorino, artist programs director, at or 614-728-6140.

My new book is These Americans, a collection of short stories and a novella published by Minerva Rising Press. The novella in this collection, “Hawk,” was a finalist for the PEN/Bellwether Prize.

My novel And Laughter Fell From the Sky was published in 2012 by HarperCollins.

My short stories have been published in numerous literary magazines and anthologies.

I was selected as a Fiction Fellow at the 2021 Sewanee Writers’ Conference. I am the recipient of an Artist Fellowship Grant from the Washington, DC Commission on the Arts.

I was born and raised in northeastern Ohio. My parents are immigrants from India. I graduated with a B.A. in English Literature from Kent State University.
