Born in Kerala in 1973, Alapat grew up in Mumbai and took a BA in Political Science from Mumbai University in 1994. Since then, he has worked in the book trade, journalism and the IT industry. Alapat has been writing poetry for the blog www.woodsmoke.wordpress.com since 2008. His poetry is a freewheeling expression of his thoughts usually with the urban landscape of Bombay as backdrop: streets, trains and ghosts are always crisscrossing his poems. A freelance writer, Alapat currently lives in Mumbai.

Rochelle Potkar is a fiction writer and poet. Her short stories have appeared in Far Enough East, Sein und Werden, The Medulla Review, The Nassau Review, Women Writers, Writer’s Hub, Bewildering Stories, Cantaraville, Muse India, The Bangalore Review, Revenge Ink, Nivasini, Unisun, and Lame Goat Publications.

She narrated a true-life tale at Tall Tales, June 2013, where her content and performance were lauded. She completed an Advanced Fiction Seminar offered by University of Iowa’s International Writing Program via distance learning, 2013. Born in small-town Kalyan, she craved the big city only to realize that Bombay was a small town in a large world. She now lives in ‘pandoramic’ Mumbai and Bombay, with people real and imagined. Her ebook, The Arithmetic of Breasts and Other Stories, of 7½ literary stories, has just been released on Amazon and Smashwords.
