Ritu Bhathal. Top Author Of The Week.


Today’s guest author is such a great supporter of other writers and she also runs a fabulous blog of her own. Ritu Bhathal was born in Birmingham in the mid-1970s to migrant parents, hailing from Kenya but with Indian origin. This colourful background has been a constant source of inspiration to her.

From childhood, she always enjoyed reading. This love of books is credited to her mother. The joy of reading spurred her on to become creative in her writing, from fiction to poetry. Winning little writing competitions at school and locally encouraged her to continue writing.

As a wife, mother, daughter, sister, and teacher, she has drawn on inspiration from many avenues to create the poems and stories that she writes.

Having studied at Kingston University, to become a teacher, she now deals with classes of children as a side-line to her writing!

Ritu also writes a blog, https://butismileanyway.com, a mixture of life and creativity, thoughts and opinions, which was awarded first place in the Best Overall Blog Category at the 2017 Annual Bloggers Bash Awards, and Best Book Blog in 2019. And her author blog, www.ritubhathal.com, where she writes about her writing journey.

Ritu is happily married and living in Kent, with her Hubby Dearest, and two children, not forgetting the fur baby Sonu Singh.

  1. Thank you for this great presentation. It was a great pleasure to read for getting much more information about “Ritu and the dolphins”, and to see how wonderful my workplace never will be. ;-( A great “wow” also for such a well curated desk. One can see its a teachers desk. 😉 Best wishes, Michael
