Roswitha Joshi

Roswitha Joshi was born and brought up in Hamburg/Germany as daughter of a daring army officer and artistically inclined homemaker. During her studies of Political Science and History at Hamburg University, she tied the knot with a doctoral candidate from India, with whom she settled down in New Delhi. Their union resulted in a colourful life as well as two spirited children.

While still serving with the German Embassy in New Delhi, she contributed numerous stories to Indian newspapers and magazines, before embarking on her childhood dream of becoming a full-time writer. She likes to describe her multicultural existence as living her own adventure story with humour, wit and grit as ‘survival tools’.

Her previous works include:

‘Life is Peculiar’ (a collection of anecdotes)

‘On the Rocks and Other Stories’ (a collection of short stories)

‘Once More!’ (a novel)

‘Fool‘s Paradise‘ (a collection of musings and amusings)
