about me

Since I have too much experience in writing queries and, I love perusing bookshelves, the pitch must grab me. Also, I try to think like an agent/editor and read the first chapter only. If it still holds me, I'll read more. Either way, I'll let you know.

Also attempting to be a screenwriter.

Dreams are still free, right?

favourite books

Anything by Agatha Christie. But "Ten Little Indians" is my fave.

Ernest "Papa" Hemmingway. But again, "A Farewell to Arms" is my fave.

Dan Brown. Though his recent novels are better, the plot is too predictable.

Tom Clancy, "Red Storm Rising". Absolutely disappointed in his collaborations.

Other than that, my genres are across the board. On my list, Brad Meltzer.
