1) What inspired you to write this book? 

I just wanted to express myself and writing this book was the best
possible way of reaching the people. My thought process in the novel might not
even be very well accepted and I would really appreciate that, but I would like
say that this is my first novel and the emotions that are linked with this
novel are very genuine for me.
2) How long did it take you to write the book? 
Almost around 2 years of hard work. It was a long process and I did not
wish to hurry with it as it is my first novel. 
3) Coffee or Tea? 
4) Describe your special writing place 
I still haven’t found one. Currently I am just a part timer who works as
a software engineer during the day and writes stories during the nights. But I
would really love sitting by a beach, listening to the sweet melody of the sea
and writing my heart out.  That would be
a dream come true.
5) Are
you a plotter a pantser?
A bit of both I guess. I like to keep certain things in mind while
writing a story or depicting a character, but then again a lot of improvisation
is done once the story or the character comes to life which is not at all
