Interview with Fay Rahman

When did you first start writing?
Initially, I had no interest in writing. I grew up in a household that didn't appreciate creative arts, and throughout my school years I'd been unfairly treated as a student that didn't know the English Language fully due to the fact that I'd been born in a foreign country. It was when I turn about 16 that I found a teacher that really inspired me to write and helped my creative juices flow into my written works.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The relaxation of it. The carelessness. The ability to be absorbed and overwhelmed into the world you, yourself, have created. And the power in likeness to a god to control the fate of your own story.
What are you working on next?
I have a few ideas in mind. Through a number of rather random sketches, I've had an idea bubbling within. Something like a battle between Mother Nature and Humankind. I don't know. We'll see what happens.
Who are your favorite authors?
All of them. I love classical writers and I love modern writers as well. From Chaucer to Shakespeare to Hardy and Dickens to Tolkien to George R. R. Martin. Every word has wisdom to lend.
