A trained journalist, Smriti brings with her an experience of reporting and writing, with four national dailies across three different cities, over a period of 12 years. Starting with The Tribune, Chandigarh and then The Indian Express, she went on to work with Deccan Herald in Bangalore and The Statesman in New Delhi in various capacities. She has also worked with a multi-national strategic communications firm in the capacity of a Consulting Associate besides writing freelance articles for news magazines such as India Today, Tehelka.

When not writing, she is either cycling, running marathons, binge watching OTT content, reading fiction or eating pizza (not necessarily in that order!)
