Born and brought up in Kerala and Tamil Nadu, I am in love with both these states and have in me all the tradition and culture as an essence. Writing has been a hobby since childhood and as I grew it rather became a passion and hunger to pen down feelings. Three books written and published in less than two years and proudly presenting the fourth creation now. All my books have emotions in the deepest form and that is what I can talk about. Poetry is what I prefer, but short stories sometimes fill my platter.
A working woman in the market for more than two decades running through a variety of professions, now deeply connected to logistics, in Dubai. Life and its journey have always been beautiful, with its ups and downs and yet calling for little surprises and challenges, around every corner. A wonderful family and a couple of friends are my assets, that I happily carry in my wallet everywhere. Apart from writing, I am in love with all dance forms and
melodies that can melt my heart.
Let’s dive into the interview with the author to know the journey behind “Summers and Springs”.
Can you tell us a little about your book?
A book of poetry, knitted with highly emotional poems. This is not a book with just poems that relate to life and living beings, but it is a collection of sentiments and thoughts neatly woven into strings of emotions that will evoke feelings into every reader.
Is there a specific event that inspired this story or was this an out-of-the-blue idea?
Being an emotional person myself, I love to connect to everything that holds feelings. And it was experiences that I have been through and all what I heard from you that this book is all about. So, my inspiration is all what is around me.
What got you writing in the first place?
It was just out of fun, to participate in a math project, where I knew nothing else, other that write a poem. Then when it turned out to be good, fell in love with it and knew I could write on any topic.
What was your impression of your first draft when you read it?
Cannot express. It was a mix of emotions, and it was a moment that told me, “Just go on, don’t stop”
What makes your book the one to read?
Simple language and the feelings are so true that one can easily relate it to something from their lives
What was the best advice you got while writing?
Just to keep writing and to keep improving. And even today I get the same advice, just to keep competing with myself, to be a better author than what I am today.
Who’s your all-time favorite author? Which book of his/hers made you fall in love withthem?
Sidney Sheldon, His books, “If tomorrow comes” and “Tell me your dreams” are the best. I have a collection of all his books and yes Shakespeare is my all-time favourite as well.
What is your evergreen tip to the writers out there?
There is no best time and good time, if your passion is true and if you have seen yourself in your tomorrows, then NOW is the perfect time to start and finish. Writing is the only form of art that can stay in shelves and can still talk for ages.
What was your hardest scene to write?
For me the beginning is always the difficult. The end is what I always see first and to get there is a task.
Do you have another plot brewing?
Yes, the fifth, and it will be a combination of short stories and poetry, with a different theme.
