Congratulations Shea ! We are very proud and happy that you have published a book, ‘Five Days With Sakhi’ written by you.
A few words from Shea,
“It had always been a dream for me to write and publish a story but I kept postponing it as I needed a strong storyline and a push to start writing. Once I started, there was no stopping and it took me just about a week’s time to complete ‘Five Days With Sakhi’.
I have always loved Mythology. I feel that they boost my imaginative power and creativity. In particular I love Indian Mythology as it has a wide range of stories in many versions. I am a great fan of Rick Riordan (Author of Percy Jackson, Magnus Chase and so on) and it was from him that I learnt that you can not only bring mythological stories into your own story but also take it further.”
Very true Shea, we enjoyed reading your book. All the best, waiting for many more best sellers from you ! God bless.
