What is the most fulfilling part of writing this book?

The most fulfilling part would certainly be the fact that I told the story the way I wanted to tell it. I worked with some pretty amazing and talented people from my publisher. 

And my spectacular specialist editor Nidhi Kaushik, let me keep whatever I wrote. There was nothing that I was forced to remove.

What are you planning on writing next? When would you see that released?

I’m currently working on a period psychological thriller which is a closed room murder mystery. It is set in the late 70s during the Emergency Period in India. It is based on a true story.

Like my previous work, I want to focus on the authenticity of the novel and hence am researching on a wide array of topics including ancient Indian exorcism practices. The novel should be out late 2018.

Is there an author you take inspiration from?

I do not take inspiration from authors as I feel it clouds your plot. 
Stephen King



Although there are authors, whose books I love reading. Stephen King, Keigo Higashino, Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Alexandre Dumas 
 are a few of them.

Who are your favourite authors and why?

My all-time favourite authors include Alexandre Dumas, because I feel he was a writer way ahead of his time, Gabriel Garcia Marquez because of the depth and vulgarity of human emotion that he can so easily depict, Higashino for the gripping tales that he tells and Stephen King for the master of horror and drama that he is.

My travels are where I get my inspiration from. I am a Martial artist and it is one of my greatest passions besides writing. I hold a black belt in Okinawan Shorin Ryu Seibukan karate. Practicing the arts is my go to place. If I’m having a bad day, I’ll run to the Dojo.
