The Writers Retreat
Jacaranda Books Art Music
Young Amby Balan has had enough with the 9 to 5 life at Citibank. She
impulsively quits her job and becomes a Twitter-writer for KayKay, the
hot new Kollywood superstar. But despite her new exciting job (and
having the opportunity to ogle her new boss all day long), Amby still
craves finally being able to fulfil her dream of becoming a writer.
She comes across an ad for a writers’ workshop in Greece and cannot
pack her bags soon enough. On the way to Santorini, she meets Mini
Cherian, a bestselling children's books author who fantasises about
writing erotic novels, and Bobby Verma, who left behind the
advertising world to become a travel writer.
Together, they will embark on an unforgettable adventure to finally
discover their true selves and possibly find love in romantic Santorini.
