Sita Brahmachari

Sita was born in Derby in 1966 to an Indian doctor from Kolkata and an English nurse from the Lake District. She has a BA in English Literature and an MA in Arts Education. Her many projects and writing commissions have been produced in theatres, universities, schools and community groups throughout Britain and America. Sita lives and works in North London with her husband, three children and  Billie the dog!

Sita's debut novel Artichoke Hearts won the Waterstone's Children's Book Award 2011 and the Redbridge Book Award (2012) Artichoke Hearts and Jasmine Skies (2012) were long listed for the Carnegie and was voted as a 'Recommended Read' by the School Library Association. Jasmine Skies has been shortlisted for The Coventry Book Award  and her third novel Kite Spirit (2013) has been long listed for the UKLA Book Awards 2014. 

'Brahmachari writes with an incredible grace. She is very, very good at getting to the truth inside her work, be that the emotional heartache of Mira or the near-incomprehensible pain of Kite in Kite Spirit. Reading a book by Brahmachari is a very precious thing indeed.'
