That is great. Can you tell us a little about yourself and what led you to start writing?

I am an IT professional by occupation. My love for traveling, combined with reading, encouraged me to start a blog to share my experiences and travel ideas with a wide audience. I started posting short stories on my blog that garnered a positive response.

Publishing a book has always fascinated me and was on my wish list since childhood. Lockdown due to pandemic gave me ample time to work on the idea of writing a collection of short stories. That’s how my journey as an indie author started.

Do you write full-time or around another job? How do you schedule your time to write?


I don’t and can’t write full time as my professional job takes up most of my hours of the day. For writing a blog, I separate some hours of the week and target to publish at least a post weekly. For fiction and creative writing, I can’t go by a schedule. I do it as and when I feel like writing when a fresh idea appeals to my mind or just for pleasure.


I get inspiration from the people I met during my travels. I keep my ears and eyes open to catch every interesting character or story moving around me. Some of the characters in my story are inspired by living beings and stories are inspired by the bizarre tales I heard. It is never difficult to get an idea for the book. Generally, they are swarming around, you just have to capture the right one.

Please tell us about your current book release.

My current book got released in June 2020. It is a collection of short stories. Title “Clean Slate” refers to afresh beginning. Characters of this collection of stories are stuck in the dilemma of their ordeals looking to start afresh. This collection of fictional stories shows distinct shades of lives and situations.

Some stories are light-hearted like “my tech-savvy father” where a son wants his father to be upgraded with emerging technologies. In “Unfaithful partner” two friends are preparing for their revenge from a single person but with different motives.

“Reincarnation” brings out a hidden face of society. Also, there is a horror story “Haunted house” running in the background of a broken love story.

These stories will open your mind to strange things that could happen.
