Meet The Author

When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer? 
After I read my first book at age 17. 
What do you like to do when you are not writing?  
Besides spending time with my family: reading, video games, sport climbing.
Do you believe in writer’s block?  
Sure. Although, I guess I've never really experienced it myself. I definitely dislike a lot of the stuff that I write, but that's usually just one more reason to keep going.
Do you have any favourite Indian author? 
Admittedly, I haven't read all that much Indian literature. Of the couple of books I've read, I really liked Aravind Adiga's "Between the Assassinations" and Arundhati Roys' "The God of Smalls Things". 
Would you say writing energizes or exhausts a writer? 
I guess that depends a lot on the stage of the writing process you are currently going through. But generally speaking I'd say: it's rather energizing - at least for me.
