Shanti spends more time not-writing than writing. She has finished a YA/ crossover novel and cannot understand why every agent she has sent it to is not in love with it. She is plodding along with her other novel set in India. It might take 17 years to complete but will be more comprehensible than Finnegans Wake. You can ask her about her experience reading the Wake only if you are prepared to listen to a long answer that might not make sense.
