Pavarti K Tyler is a mother of two, a devoted wife, an artist, a dreamer, a number cruncher. She’s currently writing and planting seeds in her garden — there’s nothing like a little dirt under your nails to keep things in perspective.
A little about you, first. Do you have any hidden talents?
PKT: I’m a trained opera singer. I was married for seven years before my husband ever heard me sing. I’m really loud so I tend not to do it except in a performance.
Tell us about your book, Two Moons of Sera — what themes does it tackle?
PKT: Two Moons of Sera is a Fantasy/Romance and will be released in a serial format. It tackles themes of prejudice, isolation and the state of being “other.”
Is there anything you want readers to take away from your writing? What?
PKT: That even in the darkest moments, a sense of whimsy is possible. The world is an amazing place and the people in it are generally loving when you get to know them as individuals. Never give up on the individual’s capacity for love.
Which other indie authors do you recommend or admire?
PKT: Ohhh that’s a fun one. Emlyn Chand, Jane George, Judith Gaines, David Beem… I could go on.
Lastly, what question should I have asked you, and why?
PKT: Where is the farthest from home you’ve ever been?
Morocco, the distance, the culture, the language, everything was different. It was exhilarating and terrifying to be there.
