Today we have Ms. Sundari Venkatraman , the author of the latest release Meghna with us for a conversation as she takes us behind the book and lets us have a sneak peek as to what goes on behind an author's mind as they write what we call as masterpieces. Sundari Venkatraman believes that books should transport one into a world of wonder. She has tried drawing, painting, tailoring, embroidery, knitting, gardening and an umpteen other things before she discovered WRITING. A voracious reader, she is a fan of Georgette Heyer, Julie Garwood, Janet Dailey and Penny Jordan. Jeffrey Archer truly inspires her and a hot favorite is JK Rowling.
