About ME

An Author and a poetess

I am a 13 year old best child poetess and a child author residing in Bangalore, India. I am a girl of many interests and talents, with a passion to heal and connect the world through her wise words and talents. My book is titled ‘Tween Twilight: A Symphony of Poems’, which I wrote at the young ages of eleven and twelve and published on 17th March 2021, which became a bestselling poetry book in India on Amazon Kindle the same year. I also run a blog called ‘Vapours of Veruschka’ for two years now, where I upload some more poems, my personal thoughts and experiences and poetry analysis. It’s something I engage in during my free time, apart from other hobbies.

"Words have the power to create or destroy. They are like a bilateral coin, they hold omnipotent force to create or destroy a soul. Using words to heal is my passion"
