Nikita Singh is the bestselling author of nine novels, including Like a Love SongAfter All This Time and The Promise, as well as a contributing author to books in The Backbenchers series. She is also the editor of the collections of short stories 25 Strokes of Kindness and The Turning Point. 

Nikita was brought up in a home of voracious readers and wrote her first book at the age of nineteen, in 2011. She has been a prolific writer since. After graduating with her Bachelor of Pharmacy in 2012, she worked with publishers in Delhi as an editor and publishing manager. In 2013, she received a Live India Young Achievers Award. In 2014, she relocated to New York City for higher education.

Born in Patna, and raised mostly in Indore, Nikita lived in several other cities (including Ranchi and New Delhi) growing up, before moving to New York — where she is pursuing her Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from The New School. 

Nikita writes about modern relationships in the current Indian scenario. Her books are a realistic representation of new age love — about real people, with real flaws, facing real problems. Taking off the rose-tinted glasses romance fiction hides behind, her work provide readers a raw and honest insight into the lives of Gen Y.  
I'm tired of reading about damsels in distress who need someone else to save them. That's outdated.
Women today are their own knights in shining armour.”
