How did Kishan become a writer?
I have always had a vivid imagination. Stories popped up and flowed through my brain for as long as I can remember. From the moment I learned to write, I was scribbling poems and short stories. Sometimes when I read a book and didn’t like the way the story ended, I would spend days re-doing the ending in my head until I was satisfied. It wasn’t until I was much older that the idea of penning a full length novel entered my brain. Once I started, I haven’t been able to stop.
Where does Kishan get story ideas?
Inspiration hits me from so many random things. The simple act of walking in the parking lot inspired The Second Wife series. Likewise, another book was inspired by a line in a song. Driving in silence has also been an activity that has inspired many a story for me.
Who are your characters based on?
The people in my life will all claim a character and tell you they are a hundred percent confident that character is them. I always smile and shrug when they tell me this. Why burst their bubble? But the reality is that my characters are never based on any one person. Each has their own past and present that impacts their reality.
Why do we have to wait for another book?
I hate making you wait. Trust me, I also hate making myself wait, but the writing process is not a fast one – well not for me. My stories are constructed through a multi-layered process of writing and then re-writing and then re-writing again until I’m satisfied with the chapters. The last thing I want to do is to put out a story I am not proud to put my name on.
What other stories do you have planned?
I have some suspense/thriller story ideas I am eager to write as well as some fun contemporary romances.
Which genre is more fun or easier to write, contemporary romance or suspense?
Contemporary romance is so much for fun for me to write. Although there is tension in all my stories, the romance ones have a lot more humor.
