Welcome, Adite.  I wonder would you please share a brief description of your writing journey?
My journey as a fiction writer began about six years ago after I took a short screenwriting course and was completely hooked. I had been a journalist and a content creator for more than 15 years and I wanted to do something that was different yet similar. After doing a few more online writing workshops and lurking at fiction writing forums I finally mustered the courage to write a few spec screenplays. I was commissioned to write a screenplay and I had a ball doing it. Once I was more confident of my ability to write fiction, I decided to experiment with writing a novel. I shot off an entry to the Harlequin India Author Auditions contest and was very lucky to be among the winners. That led to a contract for two books – Trouble Has A New Name is my second book for Harlequin India. My first book The Indian Tycoon’s Marriage Deal was published last year. So, it’s been an exciting journey and I’m looking forward to many more writing adventures! J

What moves you to write?
Stories! When I read a good book or watch a great movie with interesting characters and plots I feel motivated to write. I love the process of building a story world and peopling them with diverse characters.

Where did you get the inspiration for the book?
I’m a net-surfing addict and during one of my random surfing stints, I came across a travel blog with tons of beautiful pictures of the Andaman Islands. It was so picturesque I just knew I had to write a romance set in the islands. The other source of inspiration came from a news story I had read about young couples breaking up via text messages. So I combined the two and I had the premise of my story. 

I know I ask all my guests this, it's my favourite question.  Can you share a Tweet sized summary of your book?
Flying to the Andaman Islands for her best friend’s wedding couldn’t happen at a worse time for recently-dumped model Rayna Dutt. Perhaps the handsome hotelier Neel Arora can come to her rescue? 

What's next for you, Adite?
My next book is a romantic-suspense for Harlequin India and it is set in Rajasthan. Thank you so much, Maria, for hosting me on your blog! 

Delighted and honoured to have you as a guest, Adite.  I'm looking forward to the Rajasthan book, it's set in one of my favourite regions in India.  I've always found the Andamans fascinating too, to I'm delighted to be reviewing your new book. All the best with your current novel and the ones to come in the future!


Will you pretend to be my fiance for the next few days?

Recently single model Rayna Dutt does not feel like flying to her friends big fat Indian wedding. But she does-and when a mix-up with room allocation forces her to share a luxury villa on Emerald Isle with the gorgeous owner of the hotel Neel Arora, best man at the wedding, things begin to look up. Until Raynas ex turns up with a new girl on his arm!

Hitting the panic button, Rayna searches for a solution.

Surely Neel wouldnt mind being her fake fianc? In an instant the attraction they share is at fever-pitch, but when scandal comes calling Rayna soon finds herself in more trouble than she can handle!

Review - 1857 Dust of Ages - The Forgotten Tale by Vandana Shanker

This has to be the first review on MBB in a very long time and it was well worth the wait. Anyone who likes Indian historical fiction is going to adore this beautiful read.

Maria Perry Mohan's Review of 1857 Dust of AgesVolume I -  A Forgotten Tale by Vandana Shankar

As historical fiction goes, this is first class. We’re literally getting glimpses of a fascinating story as seen through the eyes of today. Can it really be that an Indian royal family gave their daughter in marriage to a British Army officer?  Some say it could be impossible, but has the truth been covered up? And why?
Those glances back in time show teasing glimpses of a royal family at a crossroads. The queen’s consternation when a male hair has not been born and her greedy sister-in-law, the one who has a son, eyes up the kingdom. Would such a queen mother be good for a kingdom? Probably not.

The princess’s character comes through as a girl who has been born to lead her kingdom. The 19th century produced one of the gr…
