Q.1) When and how did you conceive the idea of the story?
The idea of the book was brewing inside me for about ten years. I could only get down writing it in 2012 only. I believe that each story, in fact each character, decides its own time to come out. Writer is just a tool in the hands of the story.
Q.2) Which incident inspired you to write down the story?
There is no specific incident that inspired the story. It is a heroin-oriented novel. We live in a patriarchal society, wherein we don’t give the right value to our female counterparts. We simply forget that they can do whatever men do. The heroin of the book THE RIBBON TRAP, Smita, is a strong woman who rises as if a phoenix to reclaim her life. She takes the tough road alone to punish the conspirators who had destroyed her beautiful life.
Q.3) Who all would you like to thank for making you realize your dream of becoming an author?
There are lot many, to name a few. Each person I came in contact with nourished me, my thought process. I believe that every individual who comes into our lives has a role to play. The world is more than what we see.
My mother, wife, son, my relatives, friends, and most importantly, my publishers (LiFi Publications) have been very much helpful during the journey.
Q.4) Most authors also maintain a blog where they share their ideas. Do you have one? If yes, please share the link so that our readers can know about it.
