Ramya immigrated to Canada from India with her husband about fifteen years ago. She typifies the first generation immigrant - a person who straddles two cultures, two countries, two continents, even perhaps two different worlds altogether.The novel has two intertwined threads of narration simultaneously unspooling. The one set in the present is about Ramya's battle to rebuild her life. The other, a series of sorties into the past, examines Ramya's sundry relationships. One narrative skein is Canadian, modern and multicultural, while the other is Indian, steeped in myth and mysticism. They are the two sides of the same coin, the obverse and the reverse - the world as seen through the bi-focal lens of immigrant reality.

An underwriter by day and a writer by night, Pratap Reddy writes about the angst and the agonies (on occasion the ecstasies) of newly arrived immigrants. Ramya's Treasure is his first novel, having published the short story collection Weather Permitting & Other Stories (Guernica Editions). He lives in Mississauga with his wife and son.
