As I am a doctor, I'm often asked the obvious question of how I got into writing. Maybe it was because I was a fanatical reader. As a kid I used to gorge up on comics! The reading led to a desire to string up words together and I began to dream of being a writer. In fact I wanted to do English literature and medical studies for my graduation with almost the same amount of enthusiasm. Fate and hard work decided I should become a doctor. But I always knew I wanted to write more than just prescriptions. The germ persisted and became full-blown as my kids grew older and I found some breathing space. Winning the Passions III contest held by Harlequin became a thrilling opportunity and a doorway to realizing my dream.
Juggling a medical career, writing and family life isn't something I recommend to anyone who wants peace and calm but at the end of the day, I find it fulfilling. However, family members have now got used to calling out twice to get my attention when I’m daydreaming about characters’ conflicts!
In my writing, I love to delve into emotional problems people face today, especially in romantic and family relationships.
