Sitaraman is a management consultant and a seasoned finance professional with over two decades of experience in the banking and finance domain. He is a commerce graduate from Delhi University and an alumnus of Institute of Rural Management, Anand. He nurtures a deep interest in writing and as a pastime activity, likes to write short stories, humour and narratives.
Sitaraman completed his first novel, The Whistleblowers in 2009. After spending a significant amount of time and effort, without much success, in approaching different traditional publishers to get the book published, he decided to finally get the book self-published. Working closely with the team from CinnamonTeal Publishing, he got the book self-published by early 2011. However, he had continued his search for a traditional publisher. The book is now picked up by Westland Ltd. for publishing.
