Today I am fortunate to have author HemDiva here on my blog.
Myself, HemDiva or simply Diva. I’m extremely new self-published author.
I’m a student and I love to study! I love to read a lot of books, according to goodreads I’ve read 60+ books till now and trust me it’s actually 500+ books! I’m a serious bookworm.
I love to write as well! Shopping, Poetry, blogging, cartoons, painting, travelling are some of my other interests! And I love my mom and I love god!
“Chinky Pinky a Birdy Adventure” is my debut book. It’s a YA/ children’s fiction, horror, thriller, fantasy! Publishing my first book was more than awesome! I’d no words to describe how I felt! Imagine a writer without words! I feel like singing “I did it! I did it! I did it! Hooray!”, you know like Dora the explorer!
ABOUT MY BOOK
As a small kid, I loved the bedtime stories my mom narrated to me. I enjoy them now and forever. The fantasy, mystery and humour in the stories stayed in my mind forever. Go ahead, enjoy this story irrespective of your age. You’ll surely love it. Let the child in you have fun! Treat for everyone who loves bedtime stories!
Chinky Pinky are not your average girls! They can do anything to complete a school project! Even if that means going to the local store and having some ice cream and turning into something they never imagined ever!

As a big fan of horror and fantasy, I mostly write in that genres! I also plan to write psychological thrillers, dramas, YA, paranormal, romance and humour. Chinky Pinky A Birdy Adventure is my debut book. It’s the first in the series. It is YA/Children’s fiction with horror and fantasy included!

Just keep writing! That’s all! If you are writing every day, you’ll definitely succeed!

Every one of them? It would be an awesome thing to have dinner with a book character! Currently I’m thinking about Slappy from ‘Night of the Living Dummy‘! Sounds Scary though!! Lol
