Preethi Nair worked as a management consultant but gave it up to follow her dream and write her first book, GYPSY MASALA. Having been rejected by a number of publishers, she set up her own publishing company and PR agency to publish and promote the book. Working under the alias of Pru Menon, Preethi managed to gain substantial coverage and after two years of a roller coaster journey, she managed to sign a three-book deal with HarperCollins. She won the Asian Woman of Achievement award for her endeavours and Pru was also short listed as Publicist of the Year for the PPC awards.
Preethi went on to write 100 SHADES OF WHITE and THE COLOUR OF LOVE. Preethi is MD of Kiss the Frog, a company that takes storytelling into organisations. She is also on the faculty at Financial Times/IE Business School.
Preethi also wrote short story DREAMING ALICE for BBC Radio 4 and wrote stage play SARI: THE WHOLE FIVE YARDS which she originally performed herself in 2017 at the Tristan Bates Theatre. SARI has been optioned for tv and Preethi is commissioned to write a series outline.
Preethi is jointly represented by Lucy Fawcett and Gaia Banks
