From the Author

Genesis of RUBY IYER and the MANY LIVES series
Ruby Iyer is the key to the Many Lives series. Growing up in Bombay I was weighed down by the expectations of traditional Indian society. Yet, I wanted to be economically independent. So, daily I would leave the relative safety of home, knowing that my commute to work was going to be nightmarish.
It's just how public transport still is in this city. When you get on a bus you know that the man standing behind is going to brush against you. When you walk through a crowded local train platform, you accept that you are probably going to be felt up. Every time this happened to me, I would get very angry.
But, I would deal with it and get on, because if I raised my voice or did something about it, the results would not bode well. So, a few years ago when a young photojournalist was raped in the center of Bombay in broad daylight, I was furious.
It was as if nothing had changed in all the years I'd been away.
Then, I had a vision of this young girl who would not back down anymore; who would stand up for herself regardless of the consequences. Who would follow her heart ... Thus Ruby Iyer was born.
With Ruby Iyer came the dystopian Bombay setting where most of the MANY LIVES stories are set. I also use dystopian London in my books.
In fact, every single word I have written since 2009 has found a place within the Many Lives Universe. These characters and their love stories have been knocking about in my head since my own growing years in Bombay. I hope they entertain you too :)
