Christine Chitnis is an author and photographer. She lives with her husband and three young children, Vijay, Vikram and Meera, in Providence, Rhode Island. Her writing and photography are inspired by the farmland and coasts of her adopted home state, though her love of the natural world dates back to childhood summers spent in Northern Michigan. After traveling to India for over a decade with her husband, Vijay, she is currently at work on a book, Patterns of India: A Journey Through Colors, Textiles and the Vibrancy of Rajasthan, to be published by Clarkson Potter in March 2020.

She is also the author of Icy, Creamy, Healthy, Sweet (Roost, 2016), Little Bites (Roost, 2015) and Markets of New England (The Little Bookroom, 2011).
