It is so difficult to draw one's own picture and show it to the world. I am an educator by profession, an author by passion. I believe in the concept of one world, respect differences and live and let live philosophy. I love weaving stories and finally I am putting them in words. I will write as long as I have a story to tell and when I don't, I will stop.
When did you know you wanted to write?
My parents gave me ''Little Women'' By Louisa M. Alcott when I was twelve. It was then that I realised that being an author could be a career choice. I loved to read books and I still do. However I did not write any stories. I wrote only a few poems. When I had a story in me to tell, I wrote.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I lost my husband to cancer in 2011. I felt greatly betrayed. I still do at times. I guess I made the male character say what I would have wanted my husband to say to me. ''I am sorry.'The three most powerful words, more powerful that ''Í love you''
