Investment analyst-turned-author Saiswaroopa Iyer was one among the top 30 participants of the Pen to Publish Contest from Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) in 2017. Her interest in ancient mythology began in childhood and there was no question of choosing another genre when she started writing. Through her book Avishi, Saiswaroopa narrates the reimagined story of a queen named Vishpala mentioned in the Rig Veda. She recently sold screen adaptation rights to this book to a studio. Today, her books are being sold in over eight countries globally. As a mother, writer, and researcher of new ideas for her books, she vouches for the work-life balance that KDP offers.
