Interview with Sunayna:

  1. Tell us about your latest book.

A girl is unhappy with her life. An evil sorcerer then kidnaps her to the Fiji Islands, and she can’t leave until she faces certain challenges.

  1. Where did the idea for the book come from?

Before I wrote this novel, I wrote a sloppy one called Alyssa’s African Adventures. I was disappointed by the reactions, so I removed it from the market as soon as I turned eighteen. But that was how I got inspired to write this novel. A lot of the elements in the novel were also inspired by the Harry Potter series.

  1. What was your favorite book growing up, and why?
I had a lot of favorite books, but what I really enjoyed reading was Harry Potter.
  1. How did you begin writing?

I have been creative ever since I was around five or six. I used to write picture books and occasionally short stories. The first novel I’ve written happened in third grade.

Thank you for taking the time to answer some questions about your book and writing.
