Current Release: Always You

Describe your current release in two sentences?

Always You is a contemporary romance story of Lyla and Alex.

"Her new boss is her old flame. Can she go back to love again?"

What is the one thing you do not want to live without?

My husband. He is my support system. I do not think I can manage a single day without at least hearing his voice.

Please describe your writing environment.

With a full time job as a IT geek, my writing environment pretty much comprises of my laptop and any minute I get I to write. I can write anywhere if I have the ideas flowing. It can be in the tube, during meetings, mid-night or twilight!

What is your favorite TV show?

Vampire Diaries - hands down! Just cannot get enough of Damon Salvatore!

What are you working on?

I am working on my next two novels - one contemporary romance titled "Painting Ethan" and another paranormal romance series titled "Legends of Elavanh - The Dark Morning". I am very excited to finish both of them and share it with my readers because they are very touching stories. Very different from each other but beautiful. I hope my readers would enjoy reading them as much as I am writing them!

Where do you want to travel?

Vienna. I have couple of very close friends living at Vienna and we have been planning forever to hook up. Hopefully this year. Fingers crossed!

What has been the best way for you to engage readers? Face to Face / Chatting Online / Twitter / Facebook / Blogging

I enjoy blogging. I have made amazing friends through my blog and continue to do so. Nothing makes me happier than have a reader who feels his/her time was well spent reading my thoughts. I feel humbled by their attention.

What is the best thing about being an author?

Of course, it is the creativity. The power to be the creator of a world where everything works the way you want! It is an intoxicating feel of freedom.

If you had to choose one person to have dinner with, who would it be? And why?

It would be the fictional character, Dagny Taggart from Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. The controversial book's heroine Dagny Taggart left an indelible mark on my life as I learnt the lesson of never giving up from her. She fought for her company with a determination that I could not help but admire. But all through out the book, just like other characters, she was stiff. I never got a chance to imagine her laughing and enjoying a simple meal. Therefore, I want to meet her over a dinner and discover the girly side of Dagny Taggart! Maybe discuss boys too. :D

I am delighted to be here today and share my book "Always You" with all of you. A lot of love and effort went in to writing this book and I hope you would enjoy it. This book is for you!

Thank you for having me here!
