Shoma started reading romances at the age of eleven, borrowing them from neighbours so that her parents didn’t find out. At that time the thought of writing one herself never entered her head. But a couple of years ago Shoma took up writing and was amazed at how much she enjoyed it. Now she works grimly at her banking job through the week, and tries to balance writing with household chores during weekends. Her family has been unfailingly supportive of her latest hobby.

Easy to read but tough to write!

The topic I started with originally was "Easy to read books are the toughest to write". Never having written a tough-to-read book myself, I didn't feel up to making comparisons, and decided to stick with the challenges involved in writing a quick-read book.
