Author chat with Nalini Singh
We are proud to announce that the ARRA Author Chat with New York Times bestselling Author Nalini Singh is now available on the ARRA YouTube Channel.
So grab your laptop, iPad, smart phone or whatever viewing device you can and hold onto your backlist–this is the chat to end all chats!
ARRA Host Sharon and Nalini settled in for a relaxed, fun and informative chat. They delved into all things Nalini, Psy/Changeling and Guild Hunter. Nalini shared her past, her world building and snippets of what the future holds for her characters and writing.
It was truly a pleasure and honour to work with Nalini. We extend a huge thank you to Nalini for being so generous with her time and her answers.
We thank the people that submitted questions. Nalini addressed as many as we could fit into the chat.
Last but not least we thank ARRA Host Sharon who did an outstanding job of putting this chat together. Sharon formulated and collated the questions resulting in an open, enlightening and comprehensive chat.
We hope you enjoy watching this chat as much as we did putting it together.
Nalini Singh has been writing as long as she can remember and all of her stories always held a thread of romance (even when she was writing about a prince who could shoot lasers out of his eyes). Nalini loves creating unique characters, loves giving them happy endings and even loves the voices in her head. There’s no other job she would rather be doing. In September 2002, when Nalini got the call that Silhouette Desire wanted to buy her first book, Desert Warrior, it was a dream come true. She hopes to continue living the dream until she keels over of old age on her keyboard.
Nalini was born in Fiji and raised in New Zealand. She also spent three years living and working in Japan, during which time she took the chance to travel around Asia. Nalini is back in New Zealand now, but is always plotting new trips. If you’d like to see some of her travel snapshots, have a look at the Travel Diary page on her website (updated frequently).
So far, Nalini has worked as a lawyer, a librarian, a candy factory general hand, a bank temp and an English teacher and not necessarily in that order. Some might call that inconsistency but she calls it grist for the writer’s mill.
