My name is Sujata Massey, and I'm so happy you're visiting my author page. I was born in England to a father from India and a mother from Germany. We emigrated to the United States when I was five, and some of the places we lived in my childhood were Pennsylvania, California, and Minnesota. I earned a BA from the Writing Seminars department at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, a wonderful city where I worked for five years as a newspaper reporter. Although I've made some excursions away from Baltimore--two years in Hayama, Japan, and six years in Minneapolis, MN--I've spent most of my life in Baltimore, and currently live in a rambling Victorian there with my family. My books are published in approximately 20 countries, and you can find excerpts and book reviews for all of them at my author website, sujatamassey.com. I'm best known for my Perveen Mistry series about a young woman lawyer solving crimes in 1920s Bombay. I recommend starting with the first book, THE WIDOWS OF MALABAR HILL before moving on to the following three books. I've also written a lighthearted 11-book mystery series set in modern Tokyo that begins with THE SALARYMAN'S WIFE. Books in both series have received literary awards including the Agatha, Macavity, Lefty and Mary Higgins Clark prizes. I'm very grateful for the recognition and look forward to writing many more mystery novels.
