Question: Which writers do you most admire?
Answer: I most admire Cecilia Ahern and an Indian author named Chetan Bhagat!
Their Strong Emotional Impact
I like the simplicity in their writing style and stories, and most of all, the strong emotional impact of their work. When I read their novels, I feel moved to tears or laughter.
Like I had mentioned in another question, I am inspired by normal, everyday people. When I read their books, I feel I can identify with their characters and have seen real people like these characters in real life. I want all my readers to feel the same way about Shivani and Alan. I want my readers to identify with the simple emotions that they may feel in their own lives. After all, we all fall in love, go through challenging experiences, and are searching for meaning in our own lives.
Roller Coaster Ride
The best novels I love to read are those that take me on a roller coaster ride. I don’t mean this necessarily in terms of action adventure. Through the emotional twists and turns in their novels, I felt excited and curious at the same time. I wanted to turn the page after the end of each chapter. I couldn’t wait to reach the ending. And the ending was even more fulfilling and beautiful than the beginning and middle. Overall, it is an amazing experience for a reader. And I hope my novel Enchanted Silence has the same impact on my readers.
