BiographyAbout Nadishka Aloysius
Nadishka Aloysius was shortlisted for the Best Children's Book at the State Literary Awards 2019.
She is a teacher, actor, author, book reviewer and mother of two boys. As a teacher of Drama and English Language with 20 years' experience, and a mother of two sons who love story time, she finds inspiration in the little everyday details of life. Although all her books are based in her home country of Sri Lanka they are generic enough for an international audience. Her greatest wish is to Educate & Entertain and introduce Sri Lankan culture and wildlife to the world.
Nadishka loves reading crime fiction and fantasy and this is reflected in her writing for Middle Grade and YA audiences. She conducts creative writing workshops and school visits to share her love of literature. As an actor she prefers to play the antagonist since it allows her to explore the darker sides of human nature.
