*** Special Feature - March 2019 ***

About the Author:

Mehak Daleh started working on ‘Roses’ on a cold December day in 2012, giving in to an image of little girls walking to a graveyard which had been stuck in her head for months. This image became the centre around which the manuscript grew.

Her stories are born where the everyday meets the extraordinary, reminding us of how fragile ‘normal’ is. They are usually set in the hills where she grew up, and where she developed a penchant for the mysterious and macabre. Rising mists, winds swooshing though high pines and the echoing cries of birds in the hills feature heavily in her writing.

She is quite influenced by the works of Victorian and Edwardian ghost story writers such as M.R. James and Poe. Also, masters of the craft – Stephen King, Ruskin Bond and Dickens have impacted her writing immensely.

‘And the Roses Bled’ is her debut novel. She is currently working on her subsequent manuscripts. Mehak enjoys dark folklore and mythology just as much as contemporary fiction. When she isn’t reading or writing, she is probably watching a mystery/thriller or a period drama, or perhaps walking.
She once thought she was only a dog person, but a black cat taught her otherwise. She lives in Chandigarh with her folks, who, it seems, are worried that she might just be transforming into a bit of a couch potato. In her defence, she walks. A great deal (as mentioned above). Really.

About the Book:

What happens when the dead come back and can’t let go?

A catastrophe occurs in what was meant to be a fun-filled day for Nina and Alisha. Minutes ago, they were on the swings in the Rose Garden and now, Alisha is standing alone, while the help runs frantically. Her sister, Nina, has disappeared, never to be found again.
But the bond between them withstands even death. Nina’s ghost circles the house.
Is she here just to comfort her now lonely and distraught sister or is she pointing the way to unravel the mystery of her disappearance? the questions remain unanswered until six years later.
Another ghost is reaching out to Alisha from the beyond, a ghost only she can see and she has no idea why.
Battling the horror, the blood and the nightmares that follow her in this macabre turn of events, will Alisha be able to emerge from the whirlpool that the other side is trying to drown her in?
