Shobha came to this country over thirty years ago with chemistry on her mind. After raising two boys, she found she had time and passion Shobha Sharma for writing. Some of her short stories and poems were published (one by Hatchett Book Group a few years back) and also by Jane's Stories Press Foundation. She is currently the president of JSPF busy promoting the newest anthology: Jane Stories IV: Bridges and Borders. When time permits, she is also working on her short stories and three novels. You can still purchase her chapbook Kitchen Stories on our publications page when you buy your own copy of JSPF's latest anthology!
