O. Susmita

Biography

I like writing. I like reading. I like the feel of a paper as it gently brushes under my thumb or as my pen skims rapidly over its surface. I like empty notebooks and the promises they hold. Just as I like a book with its pages filled with the imaginations from minds afar. There are so many stories to be told and listened to in this world and this is, but, a small beginning.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a cosmopolitan city of India. But, my early years were in a smaller town where community played a large part in our lives. So, while the setting for most of my stories is definitively urban, there is a certain bit of longing or nostalgia for the simpler and more communal life of the town.
When did you first start writing?
I believe when I was 10. I wrote a poem called My Family that I was so inordinately proud of until one year later when I was too embarrassed to even look at it.
