Aditya Sharma grew up in Sonipat, aspiring to be cricketer. When his not-so-distinguished cricket career went for a toss, he studied law at Delhi University and then practiced in his hometown for a couple of years - until he discovered that he wanted to be a writer. Aditya started by freelanceing for various national newspapers and magazines. When a weekly publication took him on as a journalist in New Delhi, he was more than relieved to be rescued from a lawyer's drab life in the district courts. His articles and short stories have been published in The Hindu, The Tribune, Sahara Time and Life Positive. Currently, he works as an editor with Reader's Digest in Mumbai. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
