Disha Bose
Disha Bose was born and raised in India. She worked in the Tech industry before quitting to begin writing. Disha attended the University College Dublin, where she completed her Masters in Creative Writing.

As a child, she was a good liar. She would make up these elaborate stories about her family history, dream up some places that she had visited, some adventure that she had been on. Like any good storyteller, she would legitimize her stories with facts and half-truths, confusing the listener into believing what they were hearing. Until they’d eventually learn the truth. She would lose friends, but she was a maverick, throwing all caution to the wind and continuing on. She cared a lot less about what people thought about her, but more how they’d react to her stories. She should’ve known then that she was meant to be a writer.

Life beat it out of her, and that might be for the best. She focused on a career that would support herself and gain some financial independence in order for her to leave her home. In a country like India, that is crucial, if you are a woman approaching any sort of marriageable age.

Disha was lucky, she feels, to have been recruited by a tech startup, since she had degrees in journalism and English. They were looking for people to curate data, manage website content and for quality control. It was good money, and since she was just nineteen, she got sucked into the addictive startup lifestyle pretty fast. It was like being in college, but she got paid to hangout with her friends. They were required to work six days a week, twelve hours a day, and answering emails at midnight, if needed.

By the time she was twenty-four, she was totally burnt out. She didn’t have the stomach anymore for it. So she quit, and had to head back to her parents in India.

The first few weeks she spent reading books, rarely leaving her room or the house. She must’ve read fifty books, overcome by this insatiable urge to return to the thing that she loved most: stories.

This fog cleared eventually and she found the strength to leave the house again. Mainly because her boyfriend also quit his job in London and wound up in India. They traveled, their relationship strengthened, and she was reading so much more, which ignited that old extinguished flame of hers. She wanted to tell stories again. Now she was determined to remain unflinching in its pursuit.

Domestic thrillers have always been the genre that Disha’s been drawn to the most. She reads them the most. She also enjoys watching domestic dramas and thrillers on TV, however she never saw herself as a crime writer because there aren’t too many people of color writing in this genre. So she wrote a bunch of different things in the previous decade or so, however then eventually, this idea sorta came to her and she just knew that she had to start working on it. One of the central characters is Indian, which is also not that common. So she sorta went with what she loves consuming or reading.

When she wrote “Dirty Laundry”, she was a new mom at the time and everybody was in lockdown, so everybody was cut off from family and our support systems. The internet seemed to be the most viable option for help, support, and information. So, with the Facebook and WhatsApp groups, there was also mommy bloggers and Instragram.

Disha found herself spiraling because she was always comparing herself with these images which portrayed this certain story about motherhood and parenthood. It appeared totally unachievable, and she believed she was doing something wrong. She was always judging herself and everybody was already so isolated, and remembers all these months of self doubt that she went through. Disha worried that she was doing something wrong the entire time too.

She was able to move this all into a novel, thankfully, however she thinks that there’s a lot of people that are not able to distinguish online presence from reality and this is where things can get dangerous.

“Dirty Laundry” is the first stand alone novel and was released in 2023. She was the perfect wife, who had the perfect life. And you would kill to have it.

Ciara Dunphy has got it all: well-behaved kids, a loving husband, and a gorgeous home. Her circle of friends in their tiny Irish village come to her for tips on style, mothering, and influencer success, because a picture-perfect life is easy money on Instagram. However behind all of the filters, reality is much less polished.

Enter Ciara’s best friend, Mishti Guha. Ciara welcomed Mishti into her inner circle for being unlike any of the other moms in the group. A discontent marriage arranged for her by her parents back in Calcutta, Mishti is now raising her young daughter in a country that’s too cold, among kids that don’t look anything like her. She wants what Ciara has: the ease with which she moves through this world, and, in that sense, Mishti may just be exactly like the other moms.

And there is Lauren Doyle, an earth mother, who was born, bred, and the butt of jokes in their little village. With her disheveled partner and kids that run around naked in the yard, they are a mostly happy lot, even though they’re ostracized for being the singular dysfunction in Ciara’s immaculate world. Once Lauren finds an unlikely ally in Mishti, she figures her days of ridicule have ended.

But then Ciara’s found murdered in her own pristine home, and the house of cards that she had worked so very hard to build comes crashing down. Everybody seems to have something to gain from Ciara’s death, so if they do not want any of the blame, it might be the perfect time to air some of their enemies’ dirty laundry.

Disha revolutionizes some age-old ideas of deceit and love. What ensues is the delicious unspooling of a group of women that are desperate to preserve themselves.

A twisty story of murder and a love gone wrong, which is rife with bone chilling revelations. It’s a riveting debut novel, and Disha Bose is an author to watch.
