She Never Looks Quite Back is Mallika Naguran’s debut short story collection and a Penguin book. The stories depict themes of nature, war, migration, reconciliation, and love. It made it to the Singapore Literature Prize 2022 Shortlist.

Mallika has authored adaptational works such as the Ramayana: The Quest to Rescue Sita and Peter Pan in the POP! Lit for Kids series (WS Education, 2021).  She is currently working on more short prose, a poetry series on Tasmania, and two novels: magical realism for middle graders and environmental fiction for adults.

Mallika started the Pub to Park Storytelling Series to bring local voices in poetry and prose to remote villages and unusual places in Tasmania. She was a judge of Forty South Publishing Short Story Anthology 2023 where ten best stories were picked from 126 submissions from Australia and New Zealand. When not inking paper or eating Tim Tam, she spies on birds especially when the sun goes down in the central highlands of Tasmania.
