Q) There would have been a journey full of ups and downs behind all your success. Could you tell us something about your journey?
Kritika Sharma: Road to any dream is always laced with difficulties, and so has been mine. I have faced many setbacks disappointments over the years. There have been times when I felt like I didn’t want to write anymore, but I didn’t stop. After every challenge, I tried something new, something better.

Q) What’s the trickiest thing about writing characters of the opposite gender?

Q) One of the most surprising things you learned about yourself while writing your books?
Kritika Sharma: That I am a hardcore romantic at heart [Wink! Wink!]
Q) You have recently launched your book. What part of the book did you have the most challenging time writing? What made you choose the plot of the book? Can you tell me something about the perspectives or beliefs have you challenged with the recently published book?
Kritika Sharma: My latest release, The Rogue Spy, is a spy thriller. It is a new genre because I usually write romance or romantic thrillers. And the hardest bit for me was to quiet down that romantic side of my author’s personality to focus more on the thriller side.
Usually, we see a male persona in the lead character in such spy or espionage books. But I like to write about strong women and their formidable sides. Through The Rogue Spy, I have introduced a headstrong woman who defies all rules and saves the world.

Kritika Sharma: My husband, Rajat, and my publisher and close friend, Anuj.
Q) Are there any books or authors that inspired you to become a writer?

Kritika Sharma: I am proud of my words, so I write only with my name.
Q) Who has been your constant support and pillar during all this time? Is there someone you look up to as an inspiration?
Kritika Sharma: My husband has been my motivation, inspiration, support, and everything. A decade ago, when I showed him my first book (timidly), he was shocked by my words. It was for his eyes only, but he motivated me to share it with the world.
His motivation and love gave me enough confidence to send that first email to the publishers seeking representation. And even now, a decade later, it is his love and support that gives me the confidence to dabble into various genres and publish them with my head held high and complete conviction.
