What made you write ?

Every action or a word has a meaning and a meaning differently and differently depending definitely upon a perceptual difference (theirs, yours and the truth) and how you perceive is totally another matter, that’s the beauty of writing I perceive.

What’s poetry to you in general?

Poetry is the unique form of creation, of expression of feelings, emotions, etc, in one’s choice of words, the ellipsis, and so on… and even the periods and exclamation marks make a vast difference and add beauty to the subject and its theme…

What’s poetry for you?

It’s all about; how I play with the words, sculpt the thoughts and structure the feelings; I believe the poetry for me is the replica of my mood ever changing and swinging.

How do you choose the words for your poem?

I go with acoustics when choosing the words but at times, I look for rhyming so it can be hummed into a song

How’s your poetry received and interpreted?

In the words of Dr Shiv Sethi, “Most of the poets are predisposed by other writers but you have an unusual distinctive voice that evokes glimpses of lyrical intensity and deep profundity.” This is the highest acclaim I had from a highly acclaimed literary critic.

What are your current projects?

I have a couple of completed projects ready to be published. A poetry collection, “Halo – Colors of Aura” third from my Soliloquy series that focuses entirely on emotions and their feelings, “Destiny Awaits”, a paranormal fiction (Young Adult) and composition of one liners.

How do you engage with the literary community and your readers?

Engaging with the literary community and my readers is an essential and fulfilling part of my work as an author. I take several approaches to foster these connection

How do you see your writing evolving in the future?

As I look to the future, I see my writing evolving in several exciting ways. I’m eager to explore new Genres and plan to delve deeper into the themes that resonate with me. Also, I’m interested in experimenting with non-linear narratives and multi-perspective storytelling

Overall, I see my writing journey as a continuous evolution, driven by a desire to push boundaries, explore new ideas, and connect with readers in meaningful ways. The future holds endless possibilities, and I’m enthusiastic about where my writing will take me.

Tell us about your books.

I love writing and finding salvation in words. Poetry is like a lifeline for me. While I do write prose, primarily fiction, I’m eager to experiment with different genres. So far, I have written in dark romance, young adult, LGBT, societal issues, new adult, and paranormal genres. Poetry appeals to all age groups, but dark romance is strictly for an adult audience.
