A Fighter and A Survivor! The author of this blog is a Single Mom with an unbreakable passion to LIVE the Life!
I am an IT Project Manager by profession, but a writer and an author by passion. This blog started as a form for me to document my journey through various experiences. The kind of experiences that helped me break out of an abusive relationship, fight hard against depression and start living a positively enriching life with my little boy! That fight took me to various places on our beautiful planet. In short, I am almost a global citizen, who finally settled down on the beautiful east coast of the USA.
I found my calling as a serious writer after I took a few creative writing classes both online and on-campus with the idea of refining my writing skills in preparation for my first time participating in NANOWRIMO. As of now, I am working on multiple writing projects; I am busy querying the literary agents for my Psychological Thriller One Summer Day, which was inspired by a short story I wrote as a part of a Writing Challenge. You can read the inspiration story if you click here.
The second WIP that I am working on is a Mystery Thriller Buried Deceptions, which is in the draft 3 stages as of early 2020. Click here to read a synopsis of the novel.
And while I am working hard query WIP one and rewriting WIP two, I am also conducting research for a third book (no, it is not a series), which was inspired by, yes you guessed it, another short story I wrote for a Writing Challenge. To read a synopsis of this Contemporary/Mainstream fiction novel, click here.
Being a Single Mom has taught me a lot of lessons, some of which I have enjoyed and others that I learned the hard way. When life hands out a variety of experiences, it is only fair that we share it, this thought has prompted me to start compiling the lessons I learned and am still learning as a Single Mother into an eBook. Stay tuned for more information on that!
I enjoy writing fiction and participating in various writing challenges. One such challenge led me to In The Pantheon where I voice the Goddess Artemis. Do check them out, it’s amazing how 30+ authors come together on this website voicing the various deities of the Greek Pantheon.
Through this blog, I want to tell the story of my writing life, everything I am learning in this wonderful writing journey, my relationship with my son and my family who are my pillar of strength and my best supporters, my experience being a single parent, my views on the various social issues and pretty much everything under the Writing umbrella!
Since Change is the only thing that is constant, I will say that this blog’s output is ever-changing! With every change, though, I hope to keep you entertained.
