The Storyteller's Secret
Bestselling Novel on Amazon & Washington Post
Nothing prepares Jaya, a New York journalist, for the heartbreak of her third miscarriage and the slow unraveling of her marriage in its wake. Desperate to assuage her deep anguish, she decides to go to India to uncover answers to her family’s past.
Intoxicated by the sights, smells, and sounds she experiences, Jaya becomes an eager student of the culture. But it is Ravi—her grandmother’s former servant and trusted confidant—who reveals the resilience, struggles, secret love, and tragic fall of Jaya’s pioneering grandmother during the British occupation. Through her courageous grandmother’s arrestingly romantic and heart-wrenching story, Jaya discovers the legacy bequeathed to her and a strength that, until now, she never knew was possible.

"There is no way I could have given Trail of Broken Wings less than five stars. Sejal Badani has a gift for written expression. Much of her narrative shook me to my core. It was poignant, haunting and beautiful and I found myself highlighting much of the book."

I often get asked about my path to being a published author and I ask if the person has a few hours to spare. There’s a common saying amongst writers: Ask a thousand writers about their journey and you’ll get a thousand different stories.
To me it felt like I always wanted to be a writer. My first memory of my decision was reading a Judy Blume book at six years old then telling my sister I wanted to write books one day. It took me over thirty years to achieve my dream. I didn’t pursue writing seriously until after giving birth to my first child. During my leave from the law I wrote a screenplay about two runners based off of my husband’s stories of his collegiate years. Without knowing the rules, I snail mailed it to over a hundred producers, contests, and studios. I’ll blame it on lack of sleep but ignorance was bliss. In between all the return letters telling me I was a novice for sending the script without querying first there were some positive responses! It was all the encouragement I needed. I concocted a foolproof plan for success. I scheduled my writing hours in between my son’s sleep time and work. I committed myself to publishing my first book or selling my first movie before he turned one. Unfortunately, my firstborn didn’t agree with my commitment. My second-born sided with him. The plan promptly fell apart.
