About Frederika Menezes
Born in September 1979 in Goa, India, Frederika Menezes doesn’t let Cerebral Palsy and a wheelchair come in the way of what she loves doing –painting, writing and staying in touch with the world via cyberspace. At age 13, while still in school, she started her writing career as a poet and since then there has been no looking back. She has written and published two books – a collection of poems titled The Portrait (1998) and a fiction/fantasy book The Pepperns and Wars of the Mind (2003).
In 1999, one of her poems was selected by the International Library of Poetry for publication in an anthology of poems – Fire in the Heart. She won the J.C. Award (Junior Citizen of the Year) in 1999 from the J.C. Chamber of Panjim, Goa.
