Interview with Kamal T. Saleem

What's the story behind your latest book?
looking at today's political, economic and social state of affairs and how mankind is abusing the planet propelled me to write this, 'What If' story.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
My hobbies are Oil painting and song writing
What is your writing process?
I was raised during a time when there was a race to outer space between America and Russia that sparked my imagination. The television programs and movies were also fascinating to me as a young child. TV series like Twilightzone, Star Trek, One Step beyond and others opened my mind to a world of possibilities. My exposure to these television series and movies of altered realities led me to think about how the present day political and social state of affairs could effect what could happen in the near future. Before I begin writing a story I sketch out an outline. Before I put pen to paper I know how my story will begin and end. As the characters' personalities reveal themselves their uniqueness provide the twists and turns, sometimes even I am surprised at what they say and do..
What are you working on next?
I am currently working on the prequel to Oracle and the Paradigm of Seekdom.
