Pushpanath, better known by the pseudonym Kottayam Pushpanath (Malayalam: കോട്ടയം പുഷ്പനാഥ്), was a prolific Malayali author most noted for his detective novels in Malayalam language. He also wrote mainstream novels, science fiction, and horror fiction, and translated Bram Stoker's Dracula into Malayalam. He died 2 May 2018 aged 80 at his home in Kottayam after a long bout of age-related problems. He was married to Mariyamma, and had three children - Salim, Seenu and Jemi.

Most of Pushpanath's work appeared during the period of the 1970s and 1980s. In the tradition of Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot, Pushpanath created two main fictional detectives Marxin and Pushparaj. If the story is set somewhere in India, Pushparaj often takes the role of the lead detective officer. Otherwise, detective Marxin is the protagonist. A Detective Sudheer also appears in the lead role in some of his novels. Grandson "'Rayan Pushpanath"' got royalty of pushpanath's every works.

Pushapanath lived in Kottayam, Kerala.
