Literary festivals are an important part of every author’s life. Since being published two years ago, I have spoken at many such festivals, and, all in all, have enjoyed them immensely. I love the interaction with readers, and, because I am comfortable speaking publicly, I also feel the audience gets something out of my colourful descriptions of life in India and the back story behind my books. Recently I attended the Emirates Literary Festival in Dubai. Click here to read a piece I wrote for their blog describing a very special event.
