November Author Interviews with Komali da Silva

Today I'd like to welcome, Komali da Silva! 

Thanks so much for taking the time to answer my questions. 
I'm excited to have you and can't wait to learn more about you.

1. Where do you find inspiration for your books? 

When I started my first novel I guess they were my hormones. I didn’t know it yet, but I was pregnant then. 
Now it’s my daughter, books I read and my imagination. 

2. Is there a routine to your writing?

Yes, I write at night when hubby and my daughter are asleep. That’s best time I can concentrate. I’m not a morning person so I’d rather sleep in when I get the chance. 

3. Who are some of your favorite writers? How have they inspired you?
Lauren Kate, Cassandra Clare, Carlos Ruiz Zafon, Cecelia Ahern, J.K. Rowling, Amy Bartol, Susan Collins and Richelle Mead are some of my favourite authors. I love their writing style and their world building. 

4. What are you working on now?

I’m participating in NaNoWriMo for the first time this year. Although I have four other books which I have started I started this new project and I’m in love with it. All these projects are either YA or NA genre. 

5. What advice would you give to unpublished writers?

Finish the books you start to write. The feeling when you type those last two words ‘The End’, that just gives you the best feeling ever. Never doubt yourselves no matter what others say. 

Coffee or Tea

Tea. Totally not a coffee person

Wine or Beer


Movies or Books
Oh tough question. I would say likewise. 

Hemsworth or Pratt
Hemsworth all the way. I dream about them. ;) 

Summer or Winter
Summer. I hate the cold. I’ll take 100 degrees but not the cold. 

Beach or Mountains
Beach girl here. 

Pizza or Cheeseburger

Love at First Sight or Friends to Lovers

Halloween or Christmas

Game of Thrones or Outlander
OMG, Game of Thrones.


I was born and raised in Sri Lanka, speaking Sinhalese. English is my second language and I'm fluent in German, as well. Switzerland is my current home, where I live with my husband, daughter, and all my fictional friends. My best friends are fellow authors because they understand my passion for the written word, The Hunger Games, and power-wielding female characters in general.  
I love characters with a bit of humor and a little dorkiness, so I can giggle while reading. Basically, if it has anything to do with books, I'm interested in it. I happily refer to myself as a nerd who has an extensive library of paperbacks. 

The first two books of the Trilogy are on sale for $0.99 only.
