What created your interest in the world of writing?? Or what inspired you to become an author?
Ans: This question has two parts and I mean to answer them one by one. The interest in writing started from the age of twelve. Before that I used to play with action figures, creating stories out of them. When I read my first book, an unabridged version of the classic “Oliver Twist” by Mr. Dickens, I began to see an alternate way of telling my stories. Nothing really inspired me except for the movies I used to watch and get moved by the stories that used to entice me. Well “Oliver Twist” is what built by interest but it was Rick Riordan who made me want to be a writer. 
2. What are your expectations from the literary world??
Ans: I have no expectations from it. I like being part of it. It’s not a clean industry, I would say and you need to get on people’s heads to get them to work. But it’s fun.
