Alka Joshi was inspired by the richness of Indian culture and her own Indian heritage for her writing. Her book The Henna Artist is a beautiful homage to the women of India who fought for sufferage by fighting for their own dignity and personal freedom. In this interview we talk about how much her mother impacted the story behind her trilogy, the impact of India on America, why she pivoted to writing fiction and so much more. You can find The Henna Artist trilogy and more information about Alka Joshi on her website here.
