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.

Q2. When did you decide you were going to write a book?
A. It all started with a thought of creating something with the emails shared between my husband and I - I thought at a minimum it would be fun to pass this down to our children. After allowing others to read the emails and telling our story, so many people would say that I should write a book....so I did :)
_Kisses from Sardinia _has all the makings of a novel, but it’s a true story—a story of chance, romance, and happenstance that every woman, young or old, should read and thus be inspired. Laurie’s tale of adventure will awaken youn…

Q1. Tell us about yourself. What are your favorite books to read?
A. I’m a SAHM and wife. I love to watch horror movies especially if it’s based on a Stephen King book. I am a huge fan of two phenomenal female authors, Kimberla Lawson Roby & Victoria Christopher Murry. They both write African American fiction. Their novels are so inspirational.
Q2. Where did the inspiration to write come from? 
A. Wow, I remember falling in love with writing in school. Being given an assignment that allowed me to create my own story was an incredible feeling. I would spend a lot of times in my room as a kid writing fun comic strips. But the day I made the profound decision to write a book. Was when I was in middle school and a classmate had a notebook with her own fiction story. I read it and thought to myself. Hmmm, I would write one better.

Q3. How did you come up with the name of your books?
