Today I have another prolific author who has authored two books and this is her third. I got an opportunity to ask her a question, and her response will bowl you over!
So let's welcome the Aarti V !
Your first book was a thriller and now you pen a romance genre. What inspired you this change?
Both of the books that came before WYID, White Knight and Kingdom Come were romantic thrillers. With a healthy dose of romance and an equal amount of guns, bombs and people kicking ass. There is no change as such that happened, TBH.
I just figured love is the most dangerous weapon of them all. So let’s explore it sans the guns and epic action. There is no change per se that happened, except that I shifted gears and switched to a more contemporary, happen-able story. I mean, how weird would it be if Abeer turned out to be a lawyer involved in an environmental lawsuit and the evil corporation guys take Meera hostage and he comes charging (complete with a ripped bod) and saves the day while she is using her ballet training to take the goons out?
It’s not about genre so much as the story that interests me at the time of telling. If it has action, great. If it doesn’t and it’s just a bunch of people figuring life out that’s great too. If it has flying dragons AWESOME!
