My name is Maria. I was born in Dublin, Ireland, a city steeped in history and literature. I’ve been married to my Indian professor husband for eighteen years. After marriage, I moved to Lucknow in north India, another historical city. We have four school-going children who keep us busy. I love reading and have been devouring books since I was very young. I also enjoy writing. I’m a published short story writer and have written a couple of yet unpublished novels. My webiste can be found at http://gaelikaasdiary.blogspot.com/.
I love all kinds of fiction, especially romances and family sagas. My all time favorite read is A SUITABLE BOY, a wonderful novel by Vikram Seth, an Indian author. I love the book because it’s huge, because it has romance and lots of social history and family drama. I recommend it to simply everybody, but I know everyone can’t read such a long book. After all, it has over one thousand pages. My favorite writers are many. I’m always ready to ready to read and explore new authors.
