Jeevani Charika

Portrait of Jeevani Charika
"Huge fun, with a slightly different slant." Katie Fforde "Written with a sure touch. I love Jeevani Charika's writing." Sue Moorcroft "A fantastic and fascinating read." Phillipa Ashley Jeevani Charika writes women's fiction and contemporary romances with a hint of British cynicism. (In case you were wondering, it's pronounced Jeev-uh-nee.) There's a whole lot of other stuff she could tell you - but mainly: she's a former scientist, an adult fan of Lego, an embarrassing mum, a part time geek (see 'embarrassing mum') and a Very Short Person. She also writes romantic comedy under the pen name Rhoda Baxter. So why the two names? Well... Jeevani writes about British-Sri Lankan main characters. Rhoda, not so much.
