Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
My third book is about to be released, 01st Feb. ’16 to be precise, and is Book One of a Three – Book series. The series is titled “The Converts” and the first book is sub-titled “Battle of New York”.
My previous books are “Autobiography of a Terrorist – A journey from death to life” and “Annihilation : Almost – Time to start again”.
I have six more books in the pipeline as of now, excluding the two books of “The Converts” series, which are on the verge of completion.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My latest book is titled “The Converts – Battle of New York”, which is about a Zombie Apocalypse with elements of suspense and battleground action.
I was working on another book when I had a dream one fine night, which was quite detailed and described the whole plot of a Zombie book. The surprising part was that I had not seen a zombie movie or read a zombie book for more than a year. Hence, I paused my other book for the time being and started working on this one.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I have to have some movie or other running while I write even if I am not paying much attention to it or even if I have already seen it a number of times.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Jane Austen, D H Lawrence, Premchand

Books Two and Three of the series “The Converts”, a book on the 9/11 attacks, a book on life of the current Indian Prime Minister, and three more books.
