Purple Shades Finally Goes International..Signing your own books is definitely much pleasurable..- Diana Nixon

Purple Pen finally goes International. Today we have one of the popular writer from the West Ms. Diana Nixon, author of Love Line  She is the Prominent writer from U.K. So here we go..Conversation with her..

Q.1. Ma'am my first question for you how did writing happen to you?
Like was it natural or you actually had to do a lot of hard work to reach here?

Ans:         I’ve never thought I would become a writer. My profession is an International Law, and though it does involve a lot of paper work, it’s far from anything supernatural; magic and spells that I write about. I think in my case it was a long way from reading to writing. One day I realized that I had ideas for my own book to write. So I wrote the first chapter and then couldn’t stop typing until I got to the end of my debut novel. I liked the result and decided to show it to the world. It took me about 7 months to get my book published. What can I say now? Signing your own books is definitely much pleasurable than reading Codes and drawing up contracts.

Q.2. How did the idea of releasing your book in India struck you?

Ans: I always wanted my work to be distributed all over the world. When it got to the UK and Europe markets, I thought it was time to promote it on the East as well. Besides, I didn’t have to translate it into any other language, and I have already found fans in India, who received the ARCs of my novel. I’m truly happy to realize that people of different nations can love what I write.

Q.3. Which one Indian Writer you feel has done a great work in literature?

Ans: In my opinion it’s Salman Rushdie and his attempts to interpret eastern ideology and values that made the whole world think that East and West can never become one.

Q.4. One similarity and one difference between the Indian writers and the writers from the west ?

Ans:      I think the majority of modern writers have one common problem – only a few of them write books that are really worth reading. I’m far from being an expert, but there were so many times when I started reading a book and closed it after a few pages. Personally I like works that attract attention from the very first line. And I hope mine can do that too.

Q.5. How many books are yet to entertain the readers of 'Love Lines’?

Ans: There are two novels: Love Lines and Songs of the Wind; and one short story named From Scratch. It tells about a failed romance between the two subsidiary characters of LL. It’s a small love addition to the crazy amount of everything supernatural that my Love lines story consists of. At the moment I’m working on the next book of the series that will be followed by two more novels. Apart from that I’m writing a book of poems together with Abhishek Leela Pandey, the author of Man with the five heads. We are planning to publish this book at the beginning of May.

Q.6. In the first part of Love Lines Eileen's story was the centre of all. Which characters will stood up in the upcoming volumes?

Ans:    I tried to let all of the main characters say their word. The first book tells the story from Eileen’s and Christian’s POVs, and a part of the second book is written from Evans’ POV which gives the readers a chance to see more of his life; his past and his family. There are many other characters that play significant role in the whole story. But Eileen is still the leading one.

7. After Love Lines what are your future endeavors?

Ans: I have already started writing a trilogy about the guardian angels, but it will have to wait for a while as I think I’m a little tired of everything supernatural. So I’m planning to switch to something more real, give myself a break, write some contemporary romance and gather new ideas for the next magical book. Apart from that I’m writing a book of poems together with Abhishek Leela Pandey, the author of Man with the five heads. We are planning to publish it at the beginning of May.

Q.8. Which character from Love Lines you feel most connected to and why ?

Ans:All of them have something from me. They are my creations after all, they talk the way I do and some even think the same way. Eileen has my will, and she’s full of determination when it comes to something she wants so bad. Christian shares my passion for music and playing the piano. Evan is a walking contradiction of everything that I would and wouldn’t dare to do or say. Christian’s and Eileen’s parents are the reflections of those ideas and things that I cherish in my own family. Friends – is what I see or would like in my own friends. Enemies – is what I fight with in my everyday life. 

Q.9. Which Indian Book you have read so far and liked it too ?

Ans:Once I read a book of Aravind Adiga named The White Tiger. People were talking about this work, but I would have never imagined that it would be so impressive. I think it’s a perfect combination of real life and its cruelty, humor and deep feelings.

Q.10. Thank you Ma'am for your valuable time. Would you like to share something with your fans out there ?

Ans:First of all I’d like to say thanks for the opportunity to be interviewed by you. It was my pleasure to answer the questions. I hope my books will won the hearts of Indians and I, in turn, promise to do my best to write as many great books as I will be able to.
