Meet the Members: Indu Anish

“Having spent one-third of my life in the US and the other two-thirds in India, I feel blessed to know the best and worst of both worlds. My experiences in these two worlds and the people I meet are my sources of inspiration.”
– Indu Anish
A member of the Writers’ League for one month, Indu lives in Austin, Texas.
Scribe: In what genre(s) do you write?

Indu Anish: Mostly literary fiction and drama.

Scribe: What author would you most like to have a drink with, and what’s the first question you would ask them?

IA: Khalid Hosseini. My first question would be – do you know the children in your books?

Scribe: If you were stranded on a deserted island, what book would you want to have with you to keep you sane?

IA: Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert.

Scribe: What have you learned from your association with the Writers’ League?

IA: I am new and open to learning everything Writers’ League has in store for me.

Scribe: Where do you see your writing taking you (or you taking it) in the future?

IA: My dream is to see my book in the store.

Scribe: Here at the Writers’ League, we love sharing book recommendations. What’s one Texas-related book that has come out within the past year that you couldn’t put down?

IA: I just moved to Texas a few months ago so I have not read any Texas-related books within the past year. I hope to read one soon.

Scribe: Is there anything else about you that you would like to share with the world? An opportunity for blatant self-promotion!

IA: Having spent one-third of my life in the US and the other two-thirds in India, I feel blessed to know the best and worst of both worlds. My experiences in these two worlds and the people I meet are my sources of inspiration. There are so many stories that are yet to be told and after each story/book I feel, I have not written my best one yet.

Thank you, Indu!
