Who We Are

Two writers – One from the central belt of Kerala where the beauty of her land beholds the beholder. And the other from the heart of historic Delhi which boasts of rulers like Prithviraj Chauhan.
Two extraordinary cultures. One shared passion – Writing. Irrespective of its caste and creed, love for creative works unites two authors to pursue a greater goal : More authors. Many books.
The birth of The Alcove Publishers is a vision of these mutually enthusiastic writers who aim to open up new ingenious channels for creative talents. Through this innovative venture, the message they want to convey is “Your time is Now.”

Deepthy has over 16 years of experience in various fields related to content. An ardent fitness enthusiast, a vehement runner and a free–spirited traveller, she propels her energy levels as she believes in living each day to the fullest.

Her tryst with writing began as early as 6 years of age when she wrote her first poem on mother nature. Addicted to poetry and Shakespearean literature, she joined Christ University to attain her graduation in Journalism, Literature and Psychology. Her Masters in Mass Communication landed her in a reputed advertising firm as a Copywriter.

Due to her independent working choices, she then took to freelancing for Web Marketing firms, Script writing for short films and documentaries and blogging on topics related to fitness and travel.

Her first contribution to poetry was through her book in Malayalam titled ‘Atmadeepam’, meaning ‘the light of the soul’. Her first English Novel – The Run Uphill is a tribute to the undying spirit of existence.

Being a writer herself and having gone through the hits and misses of book publishing, The Alcove Publishers is her offering to the all writers who await a hassle–free creative opportunity to publish their books.

Apart from her love for Running/Outdoor Sports/Yoga and movies, she handles the Media Department at Canserve Charitable Society – an organisation committed to the cause of cancer patients and their families who require emotional and financial support.

Puja Gupta

Creative Head

Puja is a passionate bibliophile. She read her first Daniel Steele at the age of 14 and feels pride in completing her whole series of 141 novels with the same enthusiasm and vigour. A voracious reader, she is choosy about her authors and genres.

Having completed her Business Management, she took up the role of an HR consultant and established her career in Delhi. But her yearning for languages, literature and writing urged her to rethink. During her break from an aspiring career, Puja experimented with words and wrote articles in plenty.

Her entry into the field of writing was as a blogger. Her site  has blogs on topics relating to travel, food, health and spirituality. She has also published a collection of Urdu and Hindi poems by the title ‘Jazba e Ishq’, eternal love poems by a lover. Her first English book titled ‘Ode to Spring – Begin Again’ is a collection of life experiences that touch upon the essential points to a soulful way of life.

She boarded The Alcove Publishers’ cove as our Creative Head, thereby enabling us strapping support and allowing herself to work towards her passion. As a routine, she practices Yoga to kick-start her day.

An active partisan on the advocacy of women’s rights on the ground of equality of the sexes, her contribution towards educating the girl child and empowering her of her rights seeks due attention. On a lighter note, she sings to her heart’s content and smiles at every given opportunity.

Ambika Chandrakumar

Associate Editor

Books, books and more books is Ambika’s anthem for everyday  life. An avid reader  both in Malayalam and English, she diligently follows M T Vasudavan Nair, S K Pottekat, VKN, Nandanar, Basheer and Keshava Dev in Malayalam literature. During her college days, she read and re-read Shakespeare, Oscar Wilde(Importance of Being Earnest), Eugeine Oneill, Tenesse Williams(Glass Menagerie) and Virginia Woolf (To the Light house). 

Beginning her professional endeavour as a teacher, Ambika won the hearts of students with her friendly approach, broad perceptiveness and receptivity. The non-judgemental and open-minded attitude towards her work and colleagues makes her a top favourite at The Alcove. She did not consider herself a writer till our editor inadvertently took to poetry and surprised all of us with her flow and language. When not writing, reading or editing, she is busy in her cosy garden charting out nutritional goals for her veggies. Ambika is an animal lover, Kinginy and Lady [two kittens her son adopted] will live to be her flesh and blood. 

A cancer warrior, she is committed to the fight against cancer and provides time, energy and advice to Canserve charitable society, Kerala as the treasurer in charge and the guardian for innumerable patients who seek her guidance. With her wisdom she utters, “Do not invest too much in relationships, always hold back a little so that you can come out unscathed.”

Monica Prasad


The Founder of Artblossom Studio and the Art Coordinator for umpteen students at her studio, Monica took to art at a very young age. Her affair with drawings and pictures gained momentum with meditation. She used to practice it even during her childhood days. And that she considers a blessing in disguise.

Monica devotes her time to women and children who reach her for creative inputs and learning. It is her way to spread happiness all around. And that’s the reason why she chose TAP and agreed to stimulate the energies surrounding our publishing house. Apart from being a spiritual traveller through time, she is also a nature lover, a fun lover and a caring soul. Not to forget the Seeker instincts highly pronounced in her.
