I loved words. I love to sing them and speak them and even now, I must admit, I have fallen into the joy of writing them. Anne Rice

Lay me down, help me up, make it real!

So strange that I should require more than a writer and illustrator (or two- as the case may be) to create a book….that too, a children’s book!

My Graphic/Layout Designer was truly an angel sent from above… She is super creative, constantly surprising me with fabulous ideas and most important of all, so very obliging!

NMHT, is a new mum and toting her little princess everywhere, she carried out the amazing conversion of all the ideas in my head into printable matter. Baby A did not in any way stop her from being super-efficient and organised (A woman after my own heart!)

The virtual yo-yo (e-mails, drafts upon drafts back and forth) between us has been kept light and fun and a far cry from the frustrating exchanges some other authors have described.

NMHT to me, is a definite keeper!

Check out the fabulous cover she has designed and also ‘India’ as shown above! TGD Cover
