Radha Thomas was born in Tamil Nadu, grew up in Mumbai and Delhi and then left for the USA to pursue her dream of becoming a jazz singer.

She returned to India after about twenty years and found work in a publishing company, writing a column called ‘Between the Sexes’, a look at the odd way in which men and women see each other.

She used to host a weekly jazz show on Radio Indigo in Bangalore, called, 'Indigo and Blues.' Radha is also a trained Dhrupad singer and currently works for as Executive Vice President.

Her band UNK: The Radha Thomas Ensemble, has performed all over the country. Her first album as band leader is I Only Have Eyes For You. Men On My Mind (Rupa) is her first novel in a series of three. “Men, now that’s an endless topic, isn’t it?” she asks.
