Question: Who is the Women’s Fiction Author behind Enchanted Silence?
Answer: I am just a normal 20-something girl who loves to live in her imagination. I’m also working as a technical recruiter in Silicon Valley and some of my experiences working at offices have contributed to some of those hilarious office scenes you’ll read in Enchanted Silence.
Other than that, I enjoy spending time with my family and pet dog Raja, going out to have a chocolate martini, and laughing the night away with my friends.
Listening to my enchanted silence…
I started writing Enchanted Silence in 2009 and for some inexplicable reason, it became an obsession. It was like I had no choice in this matter, and I was being guided to complete the novel. Several scenes are inspired by my own life, but also stories and anecdotes I heard from my girlfriends and acquaintances.
Life As a 20-something Woman
Being a 20-something woman, I know what it is to live like one, but also looking for meaning in life. I went through my own gamut of experiences through my father’s stroke, dating, working, and it was therapeutic to take all my emotions, lock them up in my head, and then unleash them all in Enchanted Silence.
I remember making Excel spreadsheets to track my progress and cutting out my social life, so I could have the time to write. Heck, I even didn’t go to a couple parties on Saturday nights, so I could sit at home with a glass of wine and write away in solitude! It was not always easy, sometimes I wanted to pull my hair out!
Writing is like Dating Where Your Heart is Beating…
Other times, the words flowed smoothly from my mind to laptop. It was like dating, where your heart is beating and you’re excited and everything is hunky dory at first, and then after some time when you’re in a relationship, you want to scream at him.
Looking back today, I am incredibly thrilled and happy to have completed my women fiction’s novel Enchanted Silence. What is Women’s Fiction, you may be asking? It is a term for women centered books that focus on women’s life experiences and shows the female journey. Enchanted Silence is not only my journey, but every 20-something woman’s journey in the modern-day world today.
