Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I have written 2 books. My first ‘SANDHYA’ was published way back in 2010, after which I decided to take as much time as possible to write my next novel which required some amount of research and development.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My new book titled RESILIENCE talks about anti-nationalism. To shed more light, the book tries to explain how a small issue in the present time can culminate into a much bigger issue in the future, to the extent that it can go out of control. If we do not open our eyes to the issues we face today, our future doesn’t hold so good for us.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I try to keep it simple… and a throw a bit of humour here and there.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
I read a lot of articles based on current affairs that resulted in writing my new book. I also tend to read movie scripts or video game scripts just to know how the makers or writers actually think about those amazing concepts. I wouldn’t be surprised if someone reviews or comments stating that my book is ‘VIDEO GAME’ material.
What are you working on now?
I am currently working on a family values based drama titled ‘NOT GUILTY’. I will provide complete details once I have published it. I also planning a prequel and sequel to RESILIENCE.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I am new on this subject, however, the 7 years time that I have spent between my first book and second book, I really believe that websites or forums like these are the best to promote your books. The world has changed, this is a global market, no one is above and no one is below. Be it writers or businessman, we are in a world now where we can actually ask the audience what they require and create a product based on it.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Keep yourself updated on new and current topics, there are a lot of stories where the concept or idea have sprouted from the writer’s own backyard. And never give up.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Keep it SIMPLE!!!

What’s next for you as a writer?
Just to continue with what I am passionate about.
