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. For more information, contact Kathy Signorino, artist programs director, at or 614-728-6140.

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

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.
