About me

Industry Communications or Media
Occupation Writer/Editor
Location Houston, Texas, United States
Introduction My name is Neesha, and I’m a writer and editor residing in the Houston, Texas, area. As a life-long word enthusiast (I’ll spare you the “I’ve wanted to be a writer since childhood” story), it shouldn’t surprise you that most everything I do relates to the written word. It’s my 8-5, my side gig as a freelancer, and my hobby. I fit mostly into the fields of journalism, business and technical writing, and public affairs, but I’m also a wanna-be fiction writer. I have many a byline in the non-fiction world, and I’m determined to score some in Fictionland. So, yes, I’m part of the starving artist revolution, taking on the grueling yet exhilarating world of publishing, collecting rejection letters, sparks of hope here and there, the arduous waits, exploring agents’ sites for golden tickets, continuously learning and improving, and penning those fabulous story ideas every time they flood my mind. You never know which one will be the winner, right? I’m also a Trekkie, a foodie, a mom, and an avid reader of science fiction. I consider every day a good day, as long as it includes all of the above and a healthy dose of Netflix.
