10 FAQ Questions
When did you want to become a writer?
I have wanted to be a novelist from the time I was in college. Though being very aware of how unusual and far-fetched a dream it was, it became my one biggest goal. I took many writing classes after studying literature to try and make my dream a reality.
When did you start reading?
Books have always been my friends since I was a young girl. Being a quiet kid, reading books that lay around the house was one of my main hobbies. Nancy Drew and Enid Blyton were favorites of mine as a youngster. As a teenager, I discovered the great storytelling of Jeffrey Archer. So reading became more of a hobby that I enjoyed as I grew older.
Who are the authors who inspire you?
Daphne du Maurier is an author whose books and short stories I have enjoyed reading immensely. Jane Austen was also a very inspiring woman who wrote and even overshadowed male writers of her time. Amongst today’s authors Salman Rushdie, J.K Rowling and Ashok Banker are all amazing writers.
