In this he tells us, the most most fulfilling part of the book, the author, he takes inspiration from, the next book he has planned and
also who his favourite authors are, and much more, Folks...
What is the
most fulfilling part of writing this book?
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
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?
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.
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.
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.
