Though trained as a scientist, Archana Mishra opted for a career in journalism. Her articles have appeared in several Indian national newspapers and magazines including The Times of India, The Telegraph and The Asian Age on subjects relating to education, history, health, environment, witchcraft, gender discrimination and other social issues in the late nineties. Staying in some of the remote places in the tribal belt of Jharkhand such as Simdega, Khunti and Bokaro for more than a decade helped the author to acquire a deep understanding of the issues affecting the development of the underprivileged tribals living in these areas. She is the author of the critically acclaimed non-fiction, Casting the Evil Eye: Witch Trials in Tribal India (2003). Archana’s first work of fiction, ‘The Last Christmas,’ highlights the issue of ‘religious conversion and reconversion’ and its devastating effect on the lives of the Adivasis of Jharkhand. Archana lives in Bengaluru.
