Debbie Herbert: My biggest challenge in writing is plotting. I like to start with a unique premise and then spin a world from there. To do this, I often look at local legends. In my last book, Siren’s Call, I struck gold in discovering a mermaid legend from Native American mythology. I found the Choctaw Nation culture fascinating and learned so much about them and their history.
Bhaavna Arora: The most challenging part about writing is only writing and you can only overcome it by writing. I’ve learnt a lot through my own writings. The research that I’ve done for both my books was intense and very informative. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the journey of writing both my books.
Usha Narayanan: I am by nature a friendly, sunny person and so it’s always difficult for me to create really evil characters. And then, I must make sure that they’re not over-the-top caricatures, but believable and a powerful foil to the hero. When I finish my book, I realize that this is wholly my responsibility; it will sail out into the world bearing my name and will either sink or swim. So I must plan carefully, work wisely, make sure it’s as perfect as I can make it―for it’s my baby and no else cares about it the way I do!
