Almost as soon as Devika Fernando could write, she imagined stories and poems. After finishing her education in Germany and returning to her roots in Sri Lanka, she got a chance to turn her passion into her profession. Having lived in Germany and in Sri Lanka with her husband has made her experience the best (and the worst) of two totally different worlds – something that influences her writing. Her trademark are sweet, yet deeply emotional romance stories where the characters actually fall in love instead of merely falling in lust. She draws inspiration from everyone and everything in life.

If you take out the breaks and 'normal life', I spend about 7 or more hours each day writing. When I'm very busy, only 1 of these will be reserved for my books. On more flexible days, I have up to 3 or 4 hours that I can use for working on my novels.(less)

Unlike some other authors, I write series where each book can be read as a stand-alone with separate characters and a happy end. That makes it easier to coordinate and write. There's no logical sequence and no need to tie up loose ends or arrange the pieces in a puzzle.
With my "4 Elements of Love" series, I have all four books planned out (plot, blurb and rough characterization) and can't wait to write them all. With my "Romance Round the World Series" focusing on stories set in different countries, I am writing on one (Sri Lanka), thinking of the next (Germany) and leaving the rest open...(less)

New Look for the Inn Love Series

It's been a while since I posted on my blog. With so much going on in the world and in Sri Lanka, I kept forgetting about it.
Anyway, time for an announcement: I wasn't that happy with the previous covers for my Inn Love romance novel series anymore, so I decided to give them an overhaul. I relaunched the books with their new covers a while ago and now I really want to grab myself another paperback Read more of this blog post »

Short, steamy, suspenseful. This was an awesome - if dark - read that pulled me in right from the start. I love the way Fraser writes her vampires.

"Hallmark with some edge

Seeking Love is such a fun escape! I read it in two nights, not wanting to put it down either time. It has a lot in common with a Hallmark movie, but it’s definitely got more edge and more heat. The “Sweet and Sensual” subtitle" Read more of this review »

Another great one by this author!
Max and Joelle were interesting, flawed characters with great chemistry. Sometimes I wanted to bash their heads in, sometimes they gave me whiplash, but at other times they were just perfect.
