Frequently Asked Questions
1. I know nothing about India or Indian mythology. Can I still read your books?
Yes! Most of my stories are inspired by Indian mythology, but they can be enjoyed by casual readers. When required, they include explanations of the myths and legends I reference.
2. Where do you get the ideas for your books?
My writing started out as a series of posts on my blog, mostly because I was so annoyed by the way Indian mythology was treated on Supernatural, a show I enjoy watching. I decided to write what I wanted to read—modern retellings of the myths and legends I grew up with and loved. The stories got a good response, so I continued with my year-long ‘Indian mythology flash fiction project’, as I called it. When I was done, I decided to publish the best of them in an anthology. And the rest is history!
3. Why do you write fanfiction?
It’s a great way to stretch your writing muscles. Some of the first stories I seriously wrote were fanfiction of questionable quality, which I’m glad has now been lost to time.
4. What are you working on next?
Like any writer, I have several ideas brewing at the same time. I’m currently planning out a paranormal romance while editing the first draft of my paranormal thriller. Sign up to know when they drop!
