Somdatta Maity

About Author

As a child, Somdatta loved nothing more that sitting on her sofa and watching reruns of CSI. FPD gave her a chance to turn her obsession into a profession . If you don’t find her typing away on her laptop, then she is definitely perched somewhere daydreaming or listening to the latest crime podcasts (which nowadays there is no dearth of). She is an introvert and in true Cancerian fashion likes to keep to herself. But, she's always open to new book and song recommendations.

Area of Interest

She loves her Netflix documentaries and dabbles in a bit of anime. Right now, she is working on building her collection of novels. She will never say no to a good cup of tea.


She has a Masters degree in English literature from University of Calcutta.

Previous Experiences

She started off as a freelance writer and continued for 3 years. Prior to joining FPD, she worked as a writer in FloatingChips for a year.
