For the longest time, writing has been part of my life. I cannot remember a time when I was not writing. I started scribbling short stories when I was four and haven't stopped since. And so I am very excited to share some of my writing projects with you. I write mostly psychological thrillers but I have also dabbled in horror, historical fiction, literary fiction, as well as non-fiction.
In my blog, I share about my writing life as well as my writing journey. I write about juggling between work, family and my writing passions. I also write about my arduous writing journey, and hope to add many more posts soon.
Do check my blog posts out and if you find something that resonates with you, do reach out to me. I would love to connect with you!
Faber 2018 Anthology
This is an extract from my book, Let Me Go, which was included in the Faber Academy's 2018 compilation.
Would you help a loved one die? Set in present day London, Let Me Go is about a married psychiatrist, Ally Valor, who falls in love with her terminal cancer patient, David. When he asks her to help him end his suffering, she finds herself at a crossroads. Assisted suicide is illegal in the UK and helping David will make Ally a murderer.
Things come to a head when Ally finds a patient, Mildred Turner, murdered at the hands of a serial killer – one dubbed The Angel of Death because he targets terminal patients as his victims. Distressed at the violent way Mildred was murdered, Ally becomes embroiled in the police investigation only to become a suspect of DCI Ed Granger herself. For Ed, hunting down the Angel is not just about upholding the law, it’s personal. Ed’s wife, Viv, was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and he is determined to catch the Angel before the killer gets to Viv.
Things go from bad to worse when Ally becomes the target of the Angel. Fighting for her freedom and her life, Ally finds herself questioning her choices - will she help David die or will Ally save herself instead?
