If more of my friends were more successful then this could become a regular feature of my blog. Sadly, most of my friends are talentless hacks with no ambition to try any harder to reach any greater success (you know who you are).
But Shalini Akhil continues to set the bar just high enough to make the rest of us want to stop trying.
After having her novel 'The Bollywood Beauty' published a few years ago, Shalini is now a FEATURE WRITER for a new magazine out west, the AU ZONE. Don't ask, I don't know. It's based in the western suburbs so it really could mean anything. I'm surprised it doesn't come with a cap on turned sideways and a flick-knife.
But that's not to detract from Shalini's achievement. I'll let her take the glory over at her blog, i, writer.
Well done, Shalini.
