Writing stories started with competitions at school. Initially, it began with short moral stories but then, it happened to be my greatest interest. Now I am a post graduate and still going behind my passion.

To be accurate it was at the age of 17. Being an introvert internally, I wanted to pen the thoughts in my mind. And that's how it all began.

As long you understand the mindset of people, identify current trends and give the world your masterpieces, it would be a financially stable career. To make writing your career, requires more learning and understanding

4. Who is your favorite writer and why?

Carolyn Keene-pen name. It was my friend who introduced me to mystery novels. Her language was simple and every chapter unveiled mystery.

5. Where does your inspiration lie?

My inspiration is in my thoughts. Only later did I realize that I had the mind of an extrovert but the heart of an introvert. I wanted my thoughts to be heard. And that's what inspired me to pen my thoughts mixed with a genre.

6. What does your typical day look like?

One important phase of my typical day is to read. Every day it urges me to learn something new and learn phonetics.

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

Don't give up on what you wish to be. Sometimes writings can heal people. Be the kind healer. Learn, understand and have a deep knowledge before you want to get into a genre. Start with short stories.

Don't bother about your grammar. None can initially be perfect. Circulate it among your peer. Get feedback and reviews. Have your own style of writing

8. Which is your favorite book and why?

All books of Nancy Drew is my favorite. It's because it has her personal flavor of mystery.
