Deeksha is a British-Indian transplant to New York City where she lives, works, and crosswords. She started solving many years ago to marry her interest in words with her husband's love of trivia. She recently took the plunge into the world of constructing and built this particular puzzle on maternity leave with her second child. In her other life, she is the CEO of a theater start-up called show-score.com. Oh, and she once had dinner with the ex-head of MI5, who may or may not have tried to recruit her.
