What inspired you to write your book?
Having belonged to a third world country, there are numerous social issues around. One of them is burns, whether they are from fire or acid. The media is full of such news everyday, so, one day I was watching this news about a girl suffering acid burns and the story took root.
Here is a short sample from the book:
Moaning at the back of my throat, I wrapped my arms around his neck, hugged him while I kissed him back with the same ardor that he was kissing me with. It just felt right to be in his arms right now and as I pressed my body closer to him, all my tension left my body. The only thought that lingered in my mind was that I loved Anis and I was his now.
He pulled back and then kissed my ear, breathing slowly, while sending pure liquid heat coursing through my body at that simple action. I shivered in his arms as he kissed my earlobe and breathed again. I clutched his arms for support and he smiled at me. Moving down, he kissed the back of my ear and neck.
“Anis!” I moaned his name as I moved my head back, giving him more access to my neck. He trailed kisses all around my neck and then came back to take my lips in his once more. I kissed him back with ardor and felt his hands move beneath my blouse.
