The Writer’s Journey is fraught with triumphs and travails. The triumph of a well-written sentence, the sale of a book or a glowing review are touted and shared as Facebook statuses and Twitter feeds. The travails of self-doubt, rejection, and loneliness are harder to bear. Varsha will share her journey and talk about strategies that have helped her cope with the more difficult moments of being a writer. She will facilitate a discussion with the audience on their unique journeys.
Varsha Bajaj is the award winning author of How Many Kisses Do You Want Tonight? Illustrated by Ivan Bates (Little Brown, 2004) and T is for Taj Mahal: An India Alphabet book illustrated by Robert Crawford (Sleeping Bear Press, March 2011). Born in India, Varsha went to graduate school in Illinois, and worked as a counselor in St. Louis, Mo. She moved to Houston in 1998, where she lives with her husband, two children and adorable dog.
