Shilpa Menon is from an idyllic island nation called Mauritius where she spent her initial days. She is a qualified Chemical Engineer with a Masters Degree from the University of Cape Town. She lived in South Africa for around a decade, while doing her Bachelors and Masters in Engineering. She then worked in the petroleum industry for a few years and subsequently turned into a serial entrepreneur. She is the founder of the luxury lifestyle brand - 'Jolie'.
Besides being a doting, full-time mother, she continues to find the time to manage her export house that deals in a wide array of niche lifestyle products friendly to the environment, a whole host of educational aids/tools and a range of toys for children. Her other interests include baking, painting, photography, travelling and reading. Her quest for the eclectic and that un-quenched desire to walk down a road less traveled took her on a journey, at finding her passion in writing. Scars Do Heal is the first work she has published.
