Dreams can be followed at any time if you believe in them. This is what has been done by Swati Kaushal, author of the bestselling novel ‘A Piece of Cake’ and the young adult novel ‘A Girl Like Me’. Kaushal who was born and brought up in New Delhi writes novels based on her personal experiences. Her story is a perfect example of what it takes to follow your heart and the consequences may be great in some cases. She quit her High-Paying job to chase the Passion for Writing.
A bold step and wonderful collection of novels afterward
She was born in New Delhi, India and earned a BA in Economics from Lady Shriram College in New Delhi. After being graduated from IIM Calcutta, she worked in Brand Management in many global companies. However, she could not forget her passion for writing. She soon realized that she has become a part of rat-race and that is why left the corporate job to focus on writing.
Swati Kaushal started writing her first novel ‘Piece of Cake’ but she was still getting the job offers from the leading brands. She herself told that it was not easy for her to remove her Corporate identity but her love for writing and her small child that want full attention of her, made her do so.
