She was born in India, raised in Taiwan, and moved to the Land of Smiles, ‘Bangkok, Thailand.’ The journey of being a Teacher/Lecturer, Author, and Reiki Master Practitioner has exposed various aspects to being a better human and a better writer.
When she wrote her first novel (Maples: Rejuvenating Cocktail) she decided to share and publish it in India. Having published three novels now (The Wisher’s Well and The Classroom: Ashley and her Mystical Tale), it feels like the passion to write will never subside. Sharing characters and their mysteries is a wonderful way to keep connected with reality and fantasy. How often do we get a chance to see the big picture through others experiences? she speaks.
Being a Gemini, she found the Gem-in-I. The inspiration to write started when she was in high school and gradually with years of determination and perseverance she penned her first novel ‘Maples: Rejuvenating Cocktail’. Being a Teacher/Lecturer has created an insight from the minds of the youth. Her inspiration also comes from her students. She has also written various short stories, poetry, and articles.
It is a magnificent feeling to write and share the inspiration of mind to everyone. Our heart and mind is beautiful and has the ability to pen down our thoughts into wonderful writing. She appreciates and love variety of writings, the list would go on from Mils and Boons to Sidney Sheldon, Paulo Coelho, Jane Austen, Lucy Maud Montgomery, Robin S Sharma, Danielle Steel or even Shobha De. Other writings by Eckhart Tolle, Rhonda Byrne, Carlos Ruiz Zafon, Marjane Satrapi, Sophie Kinsella, Merlinda Bobis, Suchen Christine Lim, The Laws of the Spirit World by Khorshed Bhavnagri and Bed of Roses by Nora Roberts etc are magnificent writings. There are so many other wonderful writers/poets around the world and they have captivated mystery and misery wonderfully.
May the insight of the creative mind follow your heart developing everlasting joy and uplift your spirits to the road of positivism. Enjoy reading, Keep writing, Appreciate life and give yourself a pat on your back. Love and Light.
