Tell us a little about your latest book?
1st Birthday gift is a gripping christian horror book, which is a first in the Christian horror standalone series, I am writing presently. Strange as it may, this story came about during my elder sister’s wedding. We were really close, almost inseparable. I was happy she was getting married. Don’t get me wrong! But I was scared about being alone without her. Around that time I had a terrible nightmare, almost an out of body experience. I thought it was some kind of premonition or something, but I was really scared about everything happening that time. But on a second thought, I realized how amazing the nightmare could be in a book form. Voila! That was how 1st birthday came about, and I am super excited about this book.
