Interview Questions and Answers :
Q -1 Erika is almost read by everyone I met on Bookstagram. Did you ever expect this great success for your first psychological thriller?
Ans 1- When I wrote Erika, I got goosebumps. It sent chills down my spine. I was excited and knew that this book would touch a lot of people and would be appreciated by many. But the response that I got was more than what I expected. It just blew my mind. I am happy, it built curiosity for the readers.
Q2- I loved both Erika and Hiraeth. What do you think is the most loved among your works?
Ans 2 -If you ask me, both hold different place in my heart. I guess people who just read ERIKA loved it but people who loved Hiraeth after reading ERIKA told me that HIRAETH is by far my best work.
Q-3 In your childhood, have you ever thought that you would become a successful author?
Ans 3 – I always dreamt of becoming a writer when I used to read Shakespeare and Jane Austen. But Somehow, I lost my goals somewhere in the midst of IT and my home responsibilities. I knew I have that zeal in me to write amazing stories that would touch hearts.
Q-4 – I always wanted to ask this question to a bestselling author like you – What is your advice to aspiring authors?
Ans – 4 – I would say, never publish a book without getting your work edited. Don’t be in a hurry. Take time and work on it like your baby.
Q-5 The most awaited question – When would we get a chance to read the second part of ERIKA?
Ans 5 – I thought I would release ERIKA 2 end of 2020 but I had some pending editorial work that would Finish by February. I would resume my writing after Feb so most probably last quarter of 2021. I don’t want my readers to wait for that long so I would try to finish before September. Lets see. I don’t want to rush on my writing.
