Aw thanks, Priya!

The characters are completely fictional. When I create my book bible (which is basically a book with notes & pictures for all of my characters, buildings, food, customs, clothes etc...) I choose pictures from the internet for each of my characters because I need to see their faces when I write. Sudasa (the main female character) was not based on anyone famous, but Kiran (the main male character) was based on a young Shahid Kapoor. The picture I used is on my Pinterest account at https://www.pinterest.com/hollybodger...(less)

“I do need to remind you
there is no point in being fair
to others
if you've forgotten to be fair
to yourself.”
Holly Bodger, 5 to 1

“A man is measured
not by the answers he finds
but the questions he asks.
Find an answer
and you stand still.
Stop asking questions
and you die.”
Holly Bodger, 5 to 1

“Nani’s allegiance is to her anger
and
anger
runs deeper than blood and skin.
It’s set in bone
and bone, once broken,
never
heals the same.”
Holly Bodger, 5 to 1
