Review of Tell a Thousand Lies by Rasana Atreya
The above phrases prepared me for the social indignities that would be unveiled throughout this wonderful novel.
Ms. Atreya wrote in English-as-a-second-language. I must say that she may put many a native English speaker to shame.
1. When did you begin to write, formally?
If you mean novel length fiction, it was about four years ago. I tried my hand at flash fiction for a year before that, but short stories weren't cutting it, so I turned to novels.
2-How long did it take you to write this book?
Three years, off and on. For a year I worked on another book which wasn't going anywhere, so I went back and finished "Tell A Thousand Lies." Which wasn't a bad thing because writing this novel was a great learning experience.
But my first novel wouldn't let go, so I'm back at it.
3-Do you have a family background of authors?
None at all. But writing's always fascinated me. Even when I was working as a systems administrator, maintaining and repairing computers, I had the best written manuals!
