The WriteFluencer Award Winners (Season III Results)

The WriteFluencer Award for our Season III goes to:

Varunika Rajput, for the title: Women And Their World : Tales of love, loss, and survival

<strong><em>Varunika Rajput</em></strong>
Varunika Rajput

Born and brought up in the quaint and picturesque town of Nainital, she has had a splendid and blissful childhood playing under the shade of Deodar and Pine trees and frolicking around the lake. That part of her childhood always finds a place in her stories.
Varunika holds a degree in Agriculture and a Post Graduate Diploma in Management. She bid adieu to corporate life early in her career and chose the field of education. She has worked closely with several educational institutions both as a management faculty and as a communication and life skills trainer. It is Motherhood, however, which taught her the most. While she chases her kids like a phantom mother throughout the week, she enjoys her weekend in the company of a good book, her camaraderie with a pen, and the smell of freshly baked cakes in her oven. Varunika lives in the city of Mumbai with her two gregarious girls and her husband, happily juggling all the roles of a mother, wife, and writer. She will be thrilled to hear from you at: and

First Runner-up:

Hywel Richard Pinto, for the title: The Monsters of Mithi 

<strong><em>Hywel Richard Pinto</em></strong>
Hywel Richard Pinto

A resident of Mumbai, Hywel has always been a big fan of mystery / suspense books. He works full time at a media agency and reading and now writing books has been a break for him from the daily stress of life. A couple of story ideas and the encouragement of his wife, Christina and family led him to write his first novella – The Monday Murder, which was self-published and is also available through Kindle and Notion Press for the POD version.
He has published two additional books – ICE BOUND and Europa which are around the Sci-Fi genre and are available in both paperback and digital versions. Europa has been published in the traditional format through Story Mirror Publications.
His book ‘The Venus World’ was released exclusively in Kindle E-book format in March 2021 and has got some amazing reviews and feedback on Amazon and Goodreads, with U.S based Stellar Media Club giving it a 4-star rating. The Venus World is a different take on a post-apocalyptic world, something that would have been pure imagination if not for the current pandemic; and it won him a WriteFluencer award in 2021!
