An interview on Bookaholicanonymous

Thanks Smita Singh for the kind words.

‘I don’t think I decide my characters, they decide on me. They pop up in my mind as fully formed flesh and blood people and demand to be written down’ Kiran Manral

Bookaholicanonymous is delighted to present this exclusive interview with Kiran Manral. She is a prolific writer, writing books across genres. Her book ‘Saving Maya’ which was earlier launched on an app, is all set to be published in print by Bombaykala any day now. She is someone I admire and would love to accomplish half of what she has achieved till now.

Kiran Manral published her first book, The Reluctant Detective in 2011. Since then, she has published seven books across genres till date. Her short stories have been published on Juggernaut, in magazines like Verve and Cosmopolitan, and have been part of anthologies like Chicken Soup for the Soul, Have a Safe Journey (2017) and Boo (2017). Her articles and columns have appeared in the Times of India, Tehelka, DNA, Yowoto, Shethepeople, TheDailyO, Scroll, Buzzfeed, New Woman, Femina, Verve, Elle, Cosmopolitan, Conde Nast Traveller, DB Post, The Telegraph, the Asian Age, iDiva, People, Sakal Times, and more. She was shortlisted for the Femina Women Awards 2017 for Literary Contribution. She is a TEDx speaker and a mentor with Vital Voices Global Mentoring Walk 2017. Phew! Is there anything she hasn’t done?
