This Stolen Life will be published by Hera Publishing

This Stolen Life is the story of Soma, who runs away from her violent past to make a new life for herself in England.

I’m delighted to say that this book will be coming out in May 2019, published by Hera Publishing. You can read their announcement here: https://www.herabooks.com/news/hera-sign-womens-fiction-novelist-jeevani-charika-two-book-deal/

I got the idea for This Stolen Life about nine years ago. I’d just finished The New Magdalen by Wilkie Collins and was wondering what it could look like if you updated it to the present day. All I had was the first scene. The story that arose from it was nothing like The New Magdalen. I wrote several rom coms as Rhoda Baxter and finally came back to this story idea in 2016. Since we’d moved to East Yorkshire by then, I set the book in Hull.

Ah, but it’s a two book deal, you say. What’s the second book?

I’m working on that one right now. It’s about Chaya and Gimhana and an arranged marriage that went wrong.

Now, if you’ll excuse me. I’d better get back to them.
