Sheryl Parbhoo is an author and blogger. A native southerner, her interest in culture led to a B.A. in Anthropology from the University of Memphis. Her longing for the spice of life culminated when she married her high school sweetheart, a South African Indian immigrant, and became a stay-at-home mom to their five children for over 20 years.

Sheryl has blogged for years about her spicy masala/southern cornbread way of life, raising her large multicultural family, and navigating the quirks of Southern and Indian in-law relationships. These, along with the responses received from readers, are the real-life inspirations for her novel, The Unexpected Daughter.

I've heard footsteps, seen books fly across the room, and things disappear all the time. And I can put my car keys and glasses down and they disappear. Oh, wait, that's no mystery. That's middle age.

And while you're at it, go for a run outside. And then clean the bathroom, And then email your editor and text every friend you have in your contacts, just to say hi."

So, I put my phone and car keys in another room, disable wifi on my laptop, schedule my cleaning lady to clean the bathroom, and give myself a set time to write before I can get up from my desk. Every time I put myself in this "writing time-out," I end up in the zone and get a lot accomplished!

Diwali primer with author Anju Gattani [podcast]
