Author Interview: Vidisha Chandna Dua

About the author:
Ever since she can remember Vidisha has been a daydreamer. She loves to travel, try different cuisines, dance, listen to music and most of all she loves to read.
Vidisha took a break from work when her daughter was born. Her life changed when she took her daughter to her first dance class. She had an hour to spare so she started writing a story and then there was no looking back.With life experiences from the Middle East, Scandinavia, Australia and India, Vidisha weaves an emotional and romantic journey for her characters. She has always believed that if you really want something, the universe will come together and open doors that you never thought existed, all you have to do is listen and look carefully around you.

Tell us about how you write.
Ever since I can remember I have been day dreaming about 'what if' scenarios in my head for everyday happenings. I don't have a clear story idea when I start writing but I do have vague understanding of my characters. In the beginning I write whatever comes to mind. In a week or two I get a clear idea about the story then I put everything together and keep editing.

Do you listen to or talk to to your characters?
That is how I write by listening and talking to my characters in my head. Whenever I get an idea about a story line, the first thing that comes to my mind is one of the character. That character starts a conversation with me and slowly other characters come to life interacting with each other. As the story line grows, it becomes like a movie where I can picture each and every scene. That is when I start writing and, in a week, or two I can clearly see how I want it to end.

How did you decide how to publish your books?
I wanted to get my first book 'Life's Not Over Yet' published but wasn't sure how to go about it. I went online and searched for answers. There were many options but the one that I liked most was to self publish as that meant I could publish immediately.

Which romance sub-genere(s) fit your stories best?

My books are available in the following formats:
eBook, Print
