When Neelima is not at work, she is in the business of creating fantasy worlds set in South Asia and populated by forest spirits. Her speculative fiction carries tinges of folklore and verse.

 

Her writing experience is varied- she has written essays, stories and poems for magazines and was commissioned to write a non-fiction book for students moving from their campuses to the corporate world.

She likes to spread her love of writing by mentoring young writers at the Young Author Program, a writing workshop that focuses on creating mesmerizing plots and characters.

She lives in Bangalore with her family.
