Tell us about yourself and what inspired you to start writing.
I simply got lost in my imaginary world filled with vivid imaginations about chaotic situations. To be honest I was in a disturbed state of mind when I started writing and that helped to get the best out of
me. I have been a great fan of shows like Hannibal and The originals which inspired me to write a story of my own.
Tell us about your books.
Dear Love, Are you dead? is a story about a man named Lorenzo who ends up in a haunted jungle filled with strange demons. He gets to know that his past life love is still alive, but probably it is too late by the time he realizes who his past life lover is and what his purpose in life is. It has got a fascinating review by the award winning author C.L Taylor in amazon. com. It was an honour to hear that my book is one of her favourite thrillers of all time.
How did you go about getting published?
I gave a few chapters to my publisher and he was impressed by the story. We got into an agreement and got the book published in 190 countries. I honestly did not believe that I was going to get a publisher but to my surprise I did find one and I am grateful about it.
What is your writing process? Do you have a time, day or place you like to write?
I don’t follow a regular routine. Whenever I feel like getting lost in my imaginary world, I open my word pad file and start writing the things I feel inside my head. Usually I write for six days a week.
What do you like to do when you’re not writing? Full-time job, pets, hobbies?
I enjoy spending time with my 5 dogs. They are my life. Its fascinating to be with them. I enjoy watching movies and TV shows when I am free. Hannibal, Vampire Diaries and The originals are few of my favourite TV shows.
Any advice for authors about book covers?
It is important to choose a good cover because even if the book isn’t well written the cover page could lure people to get the book. So be wise in choosing the cover page.
Any marketing tips you’d like to share with other authors?
Get a fan page going. Be active. Connect with your fans. Keep them updated about your life. Get a website. Promote your book, but don’t over do it. Hope everything turns out well.

After the success of the first part, I am working on the sequel of Dear Love, Are you dead? I haven’t named the book yet, but it is going to be a lot more fascinating than the first one especially after the return of Cassandra.
