Anna Kendra was born and brought up in the City of Joy, Kolkata. Although she had never dreamed of becoming a professional author, she has always had a creative mind.
Her passion for writing was born when she realized that one painting alone can’t describe the kaleidoscope of emotions going through a person’s mind.
Other than writing, her favorite hobbies are drawing, reading and cooking. She lives with her parents in Kolkata and dreams of becoming a great writer someday.
She was one of the authors I signed with BLVNP Incorporated, whose published books like Virgin Exotica, The Vampire’s Bride and Intrigued have graced Amazon’s bestseller charts, and has become a virtual friend.
Using the pen name Anna Kendra, she not only writes romances but paranormal stories as well. She has been brave enough to break through social blocks of women who aren’t allowed to write about taboo stories.
On this interview, I dig in more on her writing life, and her love of books.
What keeps you up at night?
Books! Most definitely reading or writing books but movies or shows too. And if I’m awake after 3 am, it’s the zombies under my bed.
If anything was possible, what would you want to happen to you?
Hmmm…..so many things to wish for….but I guess winning the lottery would be great so I can use it to make my school ever better so lots of kids can come study.
What keeps you busy other than writing?
Drawing! And playing games on my cell phone.
What’s the best thing about being a writer?
Living a thousand different lives; being able to portray so many diverse kind of people with different personalities and most of all, being appreciated for writing them.
Do you have any advice to women who have been told they couldn’t do it?
Always remember that if anyone tells you that you can’t do it, remind them that they too had been born from a woman.
What’s your favorite thing about Kolkata?
Hmm…that’s a tough question. Instead, let me tell you what I don’t like about Kolkata. That would be the heat and the traffic.
