It's true what they say - when you send your intention out into the Universe, with good energy, the Universe conspires to make it happen.
I've always been completely dog crazy, and ever since we got our puppy, Sydney, in December last year, I've been longing to write a dog story. I'm immensely grateful to have received the opportunity to do so. When things are meant to be, nothing comes in the way. It's easy; it flows. This book has been magical from start to finish.
So here's my 'Lucky, It's Diwali'; my newest baby. I so love this book. It holds a special place in my heart. It's an early chapter book; a fictional story, set around Diwali, told through the eyes of four-legged Lucky. I hope you love my Lucky, as much as I love her.
Huge thank you to Tina and her fabulous team at @harpercollinsin
. Incredible how this fell in place. And @shamikasdoodles
, you are immensely talented, just as dog crazy as I am, and such a joy to work with. Each illustration made my heart happy.
It takes a village, and so, apart from the husband and the sons, I'd also love to thank, @preeti.vyas
, Natasha Rodricks and my niece, @just_your_local_houseplant.
Thank you for reading the very raw drafts, for making time for me, and for giving me such valuable feedback. Also to Sydney Sorensen - thank you for lying on my right foot, and keeping me company as I wrote this one.
