When I was seven, I decided I wanted to be an artist and a writer. I thought it would be an excellent way of finding out more about the world. It has since been a fine journey in staying balanced, making connections, and continually learning something new. I'm very happy to have such a creatively rewarding and fulfilling occupation.

I write children's books, YA books, NA books, graphic novels, and romance books, and I have a Sunday comic-strip 'The Smartist'; if you haven't seen it yet, you should. I'm deeply interested in art, books, music, musical instruments, gardening, dog training, travel, languages, history, science, kind and humorous people, mindfulness, and lots and lots and lots of other things.

So, ahem, be warned. Don't ask me such questions.

Seriously, I do two other things. I milk the situation by writing about it - http://www.maysuninc.com/articles/wri... – and I work on several projects simultaneously. So if I get stuck on one, I leave it for the moment and move on to another.

Finishing another thing generally gives me the energy and enthusiasm to return to work more effectively on the previous one. Unless, of course, it's a complete dud that needs to be abandoned for the continuing good of humankind.(less)

Sonal Panse Hi Nandakishore,

Nice to meet you. I've just been browsing through your bookshelves. You seem to read a lot on the Third Reich. Two writer recommendations if you haven't already read them - Victor Klemperer and Hans Fallada.

Best,

Sonal


Nandakishore Varma Thanks for accepting my request. :)
