Smashwords Interview

Tell us a little about yourself...
I can describe myself with a simple answer, angsty youth (now mature adult), sci-fi geek, and devout Muslim. All three seemingly disjointed aspects melded into one personality frequently converge and brew a firestorm within myself. Feeling at the perilous center of a trisecting Venn diagram my only solace and means of communicating raw emotion is through writing. This tempest tossed piece of my being is absorbed by the one and only Ravi Chen, my alter ego.

I took my love for Science Fiction and set out on a journey of self enlightenment. Studying the Islamic religion I found it awe inspiring and sought to implement it in my life. However after seeing this way of life demonized, by believers and non-believers alike, questioning its place in civilized society; I have attempted to enlighten the naysayers via a genre that is growing ever popular day by day.
What do you read for pleasure?
I love reading Michael Crichton his approach to storytelling really resonates with me. I remember the "rabbit scene" from his novel Prey. Stranded scientist conducted an autopsy on a rabbit they had watch die after being surrounded by a cloud of nano-particles. That gave me inspiration to write a similar scene in my debut novel Reapers of the Damned. Where a group of engineers got to see the effects of the entity on a celestial arachnid.
