Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I have been an engineer, tutor, entrepreneur, storyteller, and screenwriter. I am writing since 2005. Generally, I write about family, parenting, women empowerment, and inspirational fiction. In 12 years of writing experience, I wrote many poems, songs, and small and full-length stories.
What motivated me to write is observation and interpretation of life experiences. 'Mother – A Single Parent' is my second book bind up of those good and bad experiences I earned since my childhood. My first book 'A Boon to Research' is based on engineering field (metal matrix composites). This book sums up many hints and ideas related to mechanical engineering field along with my research paper which got Best Paper Award in 2012.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My latest book is 'Mother – A Single Parent'. It was inspired by a 'character' I thought of when somebody gave me a genre 'somebody does beyond the limits for someone'. In beginning, I thought to write only five pages synopsis and then I ended up with the complete book.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Well not exactly but sometimes when I write I write for weeks continuously. Like I finished the first draft of my last book 'Mother – A Single Parent' in one week. I did not go out of my room for the whole week. Sometimes I write in late nights. Most of the poems I wrote late night after 1 AM.
