That the women have the power and control over their lives to become anything they want to. If they are determined and persevere, they can achieve their goals. Prime examples are late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, TV talk show host Oprah Winfrey and Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany, and many more like them. But as Mahatma Gandhi enunciated, “Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.

As part of my interview series on the five things you need to know to become a great author, I had the pleasure of interviewing Kumari Kanchanji.

Kumari’s mystery thriller, What A Girl To Do, has just launched and embraces women’s empowerment following one woman’s fight against a corrupt society. The message Kumari hopes readers gain is that women can achieve anything they want with perseverance and dedication.

The book captures a young female reporter’s determination to get revenge against a powerful, rich evil man, who caused her family to live in poverty and for her to work as a sex slave to survive. Many journalists have been killed while reporting on the collusion between crime figures and government officials. But with her personal vendetta, this femme fatale will stop at nothing to seek justice and bring down the criminal empire including risking her own life.

Kumari Kunchanji knows all about perseverance and rising to the top in a male-dominated world. After working for several Fortune 500 Companies, she is now the C.E.O. of a medical device company. She is currently pursuing her long life passion for writing with this release of her first novel based on greed, deception, money laundering, and sex-trade in India.
