Guest Author - Nisha Mohan
Name you Write Under : Nisha Mohan
What Genre(s) do you write : Contemporary Romance and Suspense Fiction
Tell us a little about what and/or who inspired you to write : Authors like Erich Segal, John Grisham, Stephen King, Danielle Steel, Dan Brown, Paulo Coelho, Nicholas Sparks are authors who I look up to and have been my inspiration. Closer to home I have read a few books by Chetan Bhagat, RK Narayan and AmishTripathi.
I have always been interested in books ever since I can remember. I initially started off with writing articles and short stories and finally began working on my first novel about 4 years ago.
And what was the first book you wrote ? An Unforgettable Holiday
Do you write full time ? I am a human Resource Professional by the day and a novelist by night.So I don’t really write full time. But yeah that is certainly something that I would lean towards in time to come.
What is the most difficult part of the writing process for you? Well to be honest, as a writer there are always a million thoughts running through my head and even when I was working on my first book, I’d have four of five ways of how I would want a situation to be played out. The challenge lies in knowing what’s best for your book and the current story line and editing it accordingly. Trimming hurts coz for every author, his or her book is almost like their little baby and we may hesitate to trim our stories, but that is a critical step in ensuring your book is a good read.
How do you overcome this ? Read Read Read. I take a break and then read some more. The break helps me revisit the manuscript with a fresh start and I also feel a little more comfortable to edit the book when I look at it through a practical lens. Getting trusted reviews also helps big time.
What are you currently reading ? The Fault In Our Stars by John Green
Describe your current release or work in progress My first book, An Unforgettable Holiday, is a Contemporary Romance and Suspense Fiction Novel.
The book is a seat gripping thriller that revolves around a young woman, Tania’s search for timeless love and the perils she encounters during this journey. What starts off as a fun-filled holiday with friends ends up in, Tania, finding herself locked in a cabin on a lonely island. It is here when the readers begin to start questioning who are the men in her life ? Are they really whom she thinks they are ?Or is there more to them than what meets the eye ? What are those secrets that are being harbored ? Will Tania escape ? Will she find true love ? Only time will tell.
So, what's next for you? I am yet to get started on my second book. But as of now looking at having something out by July 2021, and then another seat gripping novel for sure.

And finally, what would you like your readers to know about you ? Am a tea connoisseur. I live in Bangalore, India, a land of opportunities and rich cultural heritage. I like to believe that I have some capabilities of a Mentalist where in I can read people’s mind. I enjoy predicting things before they can happen and almost all occasions I have been able to hit the nail on the head when it comes to deciphering an individuals thought process or next move. When I am not cooking or spending time with my little tyke , that is my 6 year old son, you can catch me writing into
wee hours from the comfort of my porch.
