I only write fictions. I love writing my imagination and form it a story. My characters in the story are created and thus I start enjoying while I write about them. All my locations are the one which I have already travelled and thus it becomes easy to portray them in the story.
What motivated you to write the book “The Pocket Love Story”?

What words of wisdom would you like to give to aspiring writers?
I would recommend writers to write more often. Not to think about the language or the grammar part. There are many untold stories which are still prevailing in the hearts of many people and they don’t write because of fear. Fear of getting mocked, fear of laughs or may be fear of this world. Dont get frightened, write what you wish. Let the world read some new stories.
