Jeevani Charika

Jeevani Charika (“For the record, it’s pronounced Jeev-uh-nee.”) writes women’s fiction, usually featuring heroines of colour. “A Convenient Marriage” was shortlisted for the RNA Contemporary Romance Novel in 2020.

She also writes contemporary romantic comedy with a hint of British cynicism under the pen name Rhoda Baxter. Jeevani writes insightful guides on writing and publishing including “How to Write Romantic Comedy” (with Jane Lovering) and “Getting Published is Just the Begining.”

Jeevani describes herself as “a former scientist, a fan of Lego, an embarrassing mum, a part time geek (see ’embarrassing mum’) and a very short person.”

At the festival she’ll be sharing what she’s learned about the psychology of fiction, how to write romantic comedy, and the difference between traditional and self publishing.

Book early for the best discounts! Super early bird ends on Oct 31st!
