Whenever I am asked about how the inspiration to write my first novel struck me. I always tell my age old seven year itch story. Oh! You don’t know about it yet?

Well ! Here it goes…

I have been an out an out romantic thriving on a healthy doze of Mills and Boons in between the serious reading lists (meant to widen my intellectual horizons… yes I am talking about those must-read-for-an-mba-aspirant Ayn Rand  books and several Business Management books) . And everytime I read a love story, I wanted to write one.  I started my writing stint with some fan-fiction stories on a public forum and from there began my journey to becoming a blogger and subsequently a writer.
