Q. How would you describe yourself?
I am a kind hearted and caring person. Sometimes introvert but thoughtful all the time. I am a great observer of human behavior and their nature. I influence people around me and I guide them the best way, according to their nature.

I am not limited to specific genre, already lined up many topics but I wanted to capture more attention and maximum audience so started with a Fiction - Fantasy.
This is going to be a never heard before story and completely based on my own imagination.

About story - this is going to be the best combo of love, action, mystery, suspence, magic and fantasy..
I am doing a lot research to make it the best book in its segment, I have compled 6 months already and yet to finish, so expecting to publish in December.
Q. What place does writing hold in your life, how has been your writing journey so far?
I was born a shy child, I could hardly express myself, so I started writing notes, letters and diaries that helped me a lot.
Whereas writing a book is concerned, this started while COVID 19 pandemic break down. I was in New Jersey (US) in early 2020 for an office project, it was mid March when pandemic was spread almost all over the world. So I had to get back to India.
After reaching home safe, I realized how it feels to reach home and see your family. I could not think of anything beyond my wish to write. In the month of April, I decided to take my writing skill to the world before its too late. Fortunately, we are winning over COVID 19 and me going to win the heart of my readers

This is going to be my first book, so not yet experienced but my search is on after a month or so I would need it. But most probably Kindle would be good, let's see.

The book can engage the people. That would require a powerful topic, great and interesting writing skills, good appearance in the market. And most important, it should be available with less efforts etc.

Rich Dad Poor Dad - Money is the key of daily survivals we need it, but sometimes we blame others for our low wealth, that book helped to find the reason.
