She decided to write it, because a lot of issues are not been talked about and it is hurting in every sense. In her words “it is a fiction novel, it’s in a world that exists only in my head”, as she invites everyone to come experience that world. To her her it’s a captivating and intriguing story of unspoken truth and a definite ‘must read’.
