1. Tell us more about your background and journey.

As a Walter Mitty, I have always been a little girl trying to live out her dreams more than the pragmatic reality .As I grew up I realized that adulthood is all about locking the dreams inside a safe vault in our heart and living the way life takes us as a successful survivor. 

Falling in this trap is as easy as drinking water, but when days passed, I realized I want to do more than just surviving. I want to live, I want to make others to live and love as well. So along with the passion of writing, I integrated my dreams with it as well to add the sparkle to the mirage reality. 

Sometimes vice versa to influence the perspectives and thoughts of people for a better living.

2. When did you decide you wanted to be a writer?

I think there was no right moment, when I figured out I want to be a writer. Writing was already a part of my life. It remained as the only tool to express my feelings, emotions, sometimes to express a fantasy that's far better than this sick reality. So from the mere two liners to a spoken word poetry. My writing grew up with me as well.

3. Is it a financially stable career?

Being author is as daring an adventure it is. Some authors might earn a fortune, while the others try to find a living. But through this all it's possible to earn money unless u put your art to be the more qualified and First priority rather than the money u earn from it. As obviously who wouldn't invest money for escaping the sick reality to a beautiful realm for a while.

4. Who is your favorite writer and why?

My most favorite author is John Green, since am sort of a romantic person .I felt literally so much influenced after reading his books of the fault in our Stars.I think him to be one of the most influential writers of today as he knows what he does and how he does it. wonder what he does? 

Ah..It's what every author must do, bring the minds of the readers inside the story that they remain influenced forever after. Another one of my favorite author is Ravinder Singh who beautifully penned down his sad reality a best seller. An author must know when to make his readers laugh and when to cry, it’s like adding salt to a dish. Exactly optimal.

5. Where does your inspiration lie?

Most of my inspiration lye in relating abstract stuffs  and fantasy with life and reality.

6. What does your typical day look like?

My typical day would be equipped with my college works and stuff. With the mere time I get to spend for myself,I read  and write my feelings and emotions , sometimes just a diary entry while the other time a beautiful poetry.

7. What piece of advice would you like to give to future aspiring writers?

There's no piece of advice an author can give to others as creativity and dreams differ for people...one's creativity has no bounds so what I wanna say is.. write, write ,write and keep writing to the end of the world.

8. Which is your favorite book and why?

I would say "The fault in our Stars" to be one wonderful book I have ever read. Since ,it influenced me completely, it was one book that filled me with all sorts of feelings, dealing with a deadly disease, teenage, love , deplorable loss, despair and realizing it is life and it goes on forever as a roller coaster ride.
