Michael Drury and Emma Wallace have fallen in love, but are torn between two worlds. He has family in the 21st century. She wants to stay with him, but continues to grow very ill, very fast.

Spanning almost 200 years, will their love be able to exist in the same time?


“Where am I?” Michael asked.

“This is Delancy Manor. We are an estate outside the village of Darlington in county Durham, England,” Mr. Delancy answered.

“What year is this?”

“1815, sir,” an older woman said from the foot of his bed.

BEAUTIFUL INSIDE AND OUT by Harsha Sheelam CHILDREN BOOKS AUTHOR


 

“Beautiful Inside and Out” is a collection of 10 moral stories. As the title suggests, the stories make the children believe that they are unique and beautiful just the way they are. They do not need to change themselves according to the likeness of other people.

The fantasy stories teach them the importance of standing up for themselves. Each of the stories is based in fantasy lands, as magnificent as they can be, with hidden meanings behind every action of the protagonists which are revealed as the stories proceed. The book is assigned chronologically, with colorful illustrations which are attractive and eye-catchy. Beautiful Inside and Out is a complete children’s book with the genre--fantasy and fiction. Each story has a different lesson to teach. They are based on different subjects, like color discrimination, mannerisms, bullying, sharing, animosity, self-confidence, respecting parents, prejudice, religion, love, and simplicity. The stories remain very unconventional, modern, distinctive and groundbreaking, with characters ranging from kings, princes, princesses, town girls and boys.
 
1.       How long have you been writing?
My grandfather always encouraged me to write and I was taking major interest in creative writing since 2011. Later I began writing professionally for different media in 2016. I debuted as an author in 2017.
 
2.       Why Children’s books? Do you write any other genre? 
I discovered I had so much to give to children. I couldn’t connect with writing romance, sci-fi, or other genres. I also write poetry for teenagers and adults.
 
3.       What are your goals as a children’s author?
I want to pen down as many stories as I can. I want my stories to reach to a child living in the most remote town as well. My goal is to be global and make the stories available for every child for them to grow and learn more every day.
 
4.       Where can people find your books?
The books are available on amazon websites of their respective country, Barnes & Noble, and kobo.  www.sheelamharsha.com/emporium/ provides all the easy links.
 
 

The author’s style is both formal and informal. It closely connects to the intended audience with unabridged metaphors and picturesque imagery. The language of the author is not only understandable, but also provides more scope for young children to learn new words, phrases and meanings. The stories are convincing, and realistic. They do not seem fictitious and easily fit in today’s world.

The most impacting lines from the book are quoted as, I understood that some things take time, but when we work towards it diligently, it’s unobstructed. Win it or lose it, don’t forget to try hard until you fetch it.”

Excerpt

The Unta-Golar clipped away the device before sauntering over unhurriedly to stare down at Saakshi, on her knees on the station’s dirt-crusted floor. She raised pain-filled eyes to the Ketaari officer, unwilling to cower before him. He flashed her a cruel smile before swinging a meaty fist at her. Saakshi closed her eyes in defeat, her pain-wracked body unable to garner the strength to move itself clear of the inevitable blow.

The blow never landed. Instead, Saakshi heard the distinct sounds of a scuffle, followed by some heavy blows. When she dared to open her eyes moments later, the Unta-Golar lay in an awkward tangle in a corner of the alley, caged in by two adjoining walls and the massive body of the Hadari’Kor Captain. The Hadari’Kor male leaned threateningly over the Ketaari Unta-Golar, whose stocky body cowered back against the wall. The Ketaari male’s legs lay sprawled out, one heel drumming uncontrollably on the floor in distress. One of his arms lay bent at an unnatural angle, and pale blue blood seeped sluggishly from cuts to his forehead ridges and the corner of his mouth. His eyes stared wildly up at the Captain, while his good arm alternated between pounding ineffectually on the Captain’s shoulder and trying to claw away the large hand that squeezed his throat inexorably. The Captain had crowded the other male into a corner to brace himself against the wall with one hand, while his other hand, wrapped around the Unta-Golar’s throat, throttled him slowly.

That this entire scene was enacted in complete silence by participants and spectators alike made it seem almost surreal to the Budheya girl watching it play out dispassionately. Saakshi allowed herself to slowly slide down to rest on her bottom, splaying out her legs before her with palms braced against the floor to support her weight. She leaned back comfortably on her hands, content to watch the unfolding show.

Thank the Pura, he came. Better late than never, I guess.

From her position, she could clearly see every expression reflected on the Unta-Golar’s face, but not the Captain’s, whose back faced her.

“This is for using the pain implant, Ketaari murtobak” the Captain bit out in sudden fury, his words breaking the silence in the narrow alley.

He flicked off the fist pounding on his shoulder with a casual shrug as he stared down at the Unta-Golar.

“If you ever touch her again, I will personally break every bone in your body. Are we clear?” the coldly furious voice demanded of the Ketaari.

The Ketaari male stared back at him with vicious eyes, his expression uncowed. The Captain casually exerted a little more pressure around the Unta-Golar’s windpipe, and the Ketaari’s legs went limp, his face turning bloodless and pale.

“Are we clear?” the Captain repeated, more softly this time.

The Ketaari nodded, his pale eyes a tad unfocussed, though the expression on his face promised retribution. The Captain finally let go of his punishing hold on the other male’s throat, to leave the Ketaari limp and panting on the floor. The Hadari’Kor male sprang to his feet fluidly, turning his back on the male gasping for breath at his feet to stride over to Saakshi. For a moment, he gazed down at her in silence. An emotion she’d be hard-pressed to identify flashed though the tightly leashed fury on his face. The black eyes glittered with anger and something akin to regret.

“Are you hurt?” he asked gruffly.

Saakshi shook her head mutely.

“The pain implant?” he inquired, the black eyes holding her captive.

“The effect has worn off” she responded calmly.

“Come” he commanded, holding out his hand imperiously to her.

Saakshi retrieved the piece of control panel she’d used on the Ketaari to tuck it back in its usual hiding place in her boot. The black eyes watched her silently, the palm still held out to her. She allowed him to pull her up and steer her through the small crowd of spectators, a large palm at the small of her back guiding her.

They walked in silence towards his ship, stopping just once to attach the suppressor device to her bracelet to enable her to bypass the station’s exit sensors. Once they were alone in the shuttle and on their way to his docked ship, he turned to face her.

“I apologize for being late. It will not happen again.”

Her eyes snapped up to meet the regret in those dark eyes. Saakshi nodded to acknowledge his apology.

“You fight pretty well for a tiny female” he remarked approvingly after a short silence.

She managed a wan smile at the double-edged compliment.

“Who taught you …” he paused, before stating the obvious. “The rebels?”

She nodded mutely again.

“How much did you see?” she asked him.

“Enough” he gritted out, his teeth clenching.

“Didn’t they teach you when to run?” he inquired softly after a short pause.

“I was getting ready to, but he blindsided me with the pain implant.”

The Captain hit the shuttle wall with his open palm, cursing fluently and with ease in a variety of different languages.

“Son of a swine” she interjected, not wanting to be left out of the cursing party.

After an instant of stunned astonishment, his expression lightened.

“No doubt” he agreed, his dark eyes filling with soft laughter.

“Ketaari murtobak” she offered next, showing off the single word in his language she knew. She’d learnt it by paying attention to his cuss words, the ones she could decipher anyway.

“Absolutely” he gasped out, bursting into unfettered laughter. The effect was to make him look years younger without the serious and unapproachable mien he usually radiated.

“What does it mean?” she asked him, her eyes observing the laughter on his face.

“Unknown paternity” he responded, his face still lit up with amusement.
