1. When did you start writing? And when did you first decide to be a published author?
I started writing back in my school days..but never got a chance of exposure but finally in 2019 I got a chance to enter into writing industry and by god’s grace I flourished a lot and I feel blessed and my hardwork, dedication and motivation is something which has brought to me here today at this position.
2. What is the story behind your book(s)?
my experience, my life stories and sometimes particular themes inspires me to write. When I write I imagine myself in that place and feel it and there’s where I start Penning down all my emotions. This book has my heart….it has all the phases I’ve gone through and for all the people who’ve passed through this. I always wanted to have a collection of Microtales and poems in my book and that’s what inspired me more to write this book and I’m glad.
3. Self publishing Vs traditional publishing – pick one and why?
For her traditional publishing is good to go because they have good social credibility, they have good reach to market sales, and specially all the works are done by the publisher and no pain needs to be taken by the author. And this goes good with it
As a publisher and author by herself she would definitely recommend this as it is good
4. Your favourite authors/books from your genre
My favorite authors are Ashish bagrecha, savi Sharma, Jhumpa Lahiri, arundhati Roy, amrita pritam, sudeep nagarkar. My Inspiration as a writer now is Ashish bagrecha. I take him as my all time inspiration because what I feel is I resonate with him in life, in emotions and in phases.
5. We know you as an author.. but what do you do apart from writing?
