Trisha wrote her debut novel whilst on Faber Academy’s acclaimed writing course. The idea for Your Truth or Mine?, a psychological thriller about a dysfunctional marriage and a missing woman, grew out of a single image: a happily married woman discovering that her ‘perfect’ husband has been having an affair. Trisha wanted to write about the shock of infidelity in a marriage in which one partner’s version of the truth completely contradicts the others and the subtle, and often crippling, forms of emotional and psychological control that often go unnoticed, all of which is brought into sharp focus as the protagonists find themselves enmeshed in an investigation. Trisha grew up in New Delhi and now lives in London.
