When my editor asked me if I’d be interested in writing a fictional biography of Rani Lakshmibai I dithered for days before saying yes.  Having said yes, I began my research with only a very dim idea of what it entailed. I was certainly not prepared to find myself lost in the books I was reading or enjoying the research so much that I was reluctant to leave it and begin writing!

But begin I did and found the recreation of a bygone era a thrilling experience. It was so much fun that I gratefully accepted a second opportunity to write a fictional biography.
