What motivated you to become an indie author?
I've always loved the craft of making books. Going from handwriting chapbooks to self-publishing just seemed like the natural way to go. I love the creative control it allows.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
All the completely ridiculous ideas that pop into my head when I'm trying to come up with good rhymes, synonyms, metaphors, etc. It can get pretty absurd sometimes the things that will occur to me. It's fun!
A gem of a book! Edwards captures the essence of 15 different mineral specimens in this collection of short poems. For rock hounds and crystal lovers alike! Those with an appreciation for the metaphysical will uncover a treasure trove of information and observations on everything from auras to the zodiac.
Relflections Of Life

I really enjoyed your poems in Reflections of Life. I can especially relate to Their Pain and Power of Pain. We surely do live a life of privilege, despite our pain.
How did I stumble upon this book? I don't know, but it found me at just the right moment in my life. After many months of feeling stagnant and unhappy, I am inspired by Little Girl's wisdom, and by the main character's transformation. Spiritual wisdom blooms from the pages of this book with a clarity, straightforwardness, and lucidity that is missing from many other books of spiritual teachings. Thank you Sudhir for your beautifully told story. It has illuminated the way for me, ever. I loved reading I his book, and I recommended it to a friend even before I was half way through!
