Mitali Deypurkaystha is an experienced vegan book consultant, publisher, author, and keynote speaker. However, as the firstborn of Indian/Bangladeshi immigrants arriving in Gateshead, England, she was expected to become a medical doctor.
It all started at the age of 16 when Mitali won a scriptwriting scholarship at a summer school in Edinburgh, Scotland. She fell in love with writing and even contributed to an episode of a long-running UK soap opera. At that moment, she knew medicine was no longer her future.
Two years later, she embarked on a Media Studies degree and then a Masters in Journalism. After this, she started freelancing for local newspapers and magazines in Manchester.
In 2009, fate struck. Mitali adopted a rescue cat, Isha, and witnessed sentience beyond what she believed animals were capable of showing. She discovered that we’re duped into believing animals are dumb as this suits certain industries. She became vegan in 2012.
After living in Thailand for two years, she flew home with a street cat, Kali, who she could not bear to abandon back onto the streets. Kali spent a wonderful two years in the UK, living the life of a princess, before succumbing to cancer.
For over 25 years, Mitali has worked in various industries and organizations, including traditional media, digital marketing, recruitment, the NHS and Her Majesty’s Prison Service, to name a few.
In 2015, she became a leading copywriter and ghostwriter, authoring seven business books that would generate over $6.5 million in additional business revenue and a further $2 million through sales pages and email marketing.
She is the author of the bestseller, The Freedom Master Plan, which reveals how her clients leveraged their books to amplify their voices and build unshakable authority. This allows them to attract their dream clients, generate passive income streams, gain freedom from selling as their book sells their offerings for them, and boost their visibility, sales and profits.
In 2020, she realized she was almost halfway through her life, and her dream of a vegan and ethical world would not be realized during her lifetime unless the voices of vegan/plant-based, ethical, sustainable, B Corp, cruelty-free, eco-conscious & social experts, influencers & entrepreneurs became louder.
She had also met many people whose views on animals, health and the climate were changed permanently after reading a book – that’s the power of books. She decided to integrate her passion for books with the need to empower vegan and ethical experts, influencers and entrepreneurs to tell their stories so together they can change the world, one book at a time.
Mitali is the owner of The Vegan Publisher, a book consulting company, and the Let’s Tell Your Story publishing imprint, both dedicated to transforming vegan and ethical experts, influencers, and entrepreneurs into bestselling authors. She is known as ‘The Authority Creator,’ enabling these inspiring people to effortlessly attract ideal clients, investors, donors, speaking opportunities, and even national and international press attention while putting their mission, movement and message on the map.
Her mission is to create an army of conscious thought leaders, so the screams to end the exploitation of animals, humans, and the environment will become too loud to be ignored.
When not consulting with her clients on their books, Mitali is an avid crafter, recently adding macramé, sashiko and diamond painting to her repertoire of skills. She’s also a supporter and volunteer of many animal rescue charities and a proponent of dancing like a lunatic as a cure for writer’s block (it works!)
