How long did it take to get your first novel / book published?

It took around four weeks to publish my first book Mr. Byrd’s Bird.

Can you focus on working on two books or stories at the same time?

Yes, absolutely and I love it. I’ve written four books already and four in the pipeline.

Do read about a Mother who lost a closed one.

Is there a modus operandi you follow and formulate before you actually start writing your next book?

I work through my laptop and desktop. I work through the hours on many formats.

Does the writer’s block actually exist? Any tips you would give to come out of it.

No. Not really. I write a draft of the soon to be published work and work on the edit.
