Meet today's featured author...

Damyanti Ghosh

Brief Bio:
Damyanti Ghosh is an established freelance writer for various magazines and journals. Her short fiction has been published in the Quarterly Literary Review Singapore and Muse India, and in print anthologies by Marshall Cavendish, Monsoon Books and MPH Publications.

What genres do you write?
Literary short stories, but also some flash fiction in various genres like horror and fantasy.

What are you currently writing? Sum it up in 10 words or less.
E-book based on A-Z Challenge and a short story collection.

What do you do when you're not writing?
Read, cook, clean, meet people, spend time with my pets and plants, but this is what you see on the outside. On the inside, I'm still writing, struggling inside my head with plots, words, characters. So there's hardly an hour in my day when I'm not writing. :)

What is your ultimate goal as a writer?
to be able to look back on my work over the years and be pleased with it..

How close are you to achieving this goal?
Very very far away indeed. I only submit stuff for publication because I have to be practical and finish working on a story in order to begin others!

What is the single most important piece of advice you can give a fellow writer?
Persevere, because perseverance can be as important as talent when it comes to writing.
