Q1.when did you decide you were going to write a book?

A. It was a part of my bucket list, but finally in 2014, decided to go about to actually doing it. 

Q.2 how did you come up with the name of your books 

A. The first book ‘Shreya’s Eighth’ was easy as it is about Shreya’s 8th birthday...but to leave the children guessing decided to skip the word ‘birthday’ from it. Similarly, the second is named Samira’s SIT venture which is about the SIT- the Stay Indoor Tournament. The book is set during the rainy season so the name seemed appropriate. The third is ‘The Three on a spree’. This was a tough one...as about planning for a vacation. Then realized shopping before a vacation is all that children think of so that the pictures come out great! 😊 The fourth book ‘The Braces Club’ is about a Braces club so...😊

Q. 3 what are you working on now for 20 18?

A. I am writing the third book of the second series ‘The Double Digit Club’ of which ‘The Braces Club’ is the first, ‘The Cycling Club’ -yet to be published, is the second and ‘The trekking club’ shall be the third. Besides this am working on a adult fiction and a non-fiction relating to food. 


Q 4. how long have you been writing?

A. Serious writing began as late as 2014. 


Q 5. What advice would you give other authors?

A. Write what you would want to read yourself! Do not buckle under pressure to write for a particular audience. 

Q 6.  where can people find you online?

A. The books are available on Amazon and Flipkart with the Kindle version also on amazon.com. Also, have a website www.smitajee.com and a facebook page SmitaJeePublications. I also have a blog justplaydear.blogspot.com. My personal face book page is Smita Ganeriwala 😊

Q7 do you plan on making more books in the future

A.4 published, 2 unpublished (one child, one adult fiction) and a few unfinished.

Q1. when did you decide you were going to write a book?


A. I read a book by a popular Christian author and I hated the way it ended! I have always had stories running around in my head, so I decided to write a story that would satisfy my romantic sensibilities in a moment of some sort of rebellion against the ending of that book.
Q.2 how did you come up with the name of your books 
A. The name of the book is the name of one of the main characters, and it so well encapsulates the driving source of the conflict that it seemed more than more fitting.

Q. 3 what are you working on now for 20 18?
A. I am currently working on two projects. The first is the next in the series after Lonesome Wolf. I'm loving the character more than I thought possible! The second is a western in the style of Louis L'Amour. It is interesting to me because I usually run to romances.
Q 4. how long have you been writing?
A.I've been writing since I could put pen to pap…
