            "I used to fill notebooks with stories and ideas, but it wasn’t until the age of 15 that I decided to work on my first serious novel, Randouka. Writing in school and then college was stressful and took heaps of patience, but determination got there in the end. What started as an unrealistic angel/ human love story, developed into something deep, exciting and psychological that I never expected!"
