Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, I do. It is titled ‘In the bad land’. This story was written in the 1970s when I was about ten years old. It attempted to ridicule the bad practices indulged by young people at that time. The plot was okay but it had some grammatical errors. I lost it before I could reach twenty years old. I still remember the story vividly. I would have rewritten the story if I write fiction. Although I am a non-fiction writer, do not rule out the possibility of my coming up with a good fiction. A good fiction is where the money is, you know what I mean.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read every good book except erotica. Nowadays, I tend to be driven to read more of nonfiction and less of fiction. I have to carry out a lot of researches in the area of nonfiction. I read a lot of classic books, especially philosophical books like A Grammar of Politics written by Harold Laski. At this my old age, I also read the Bible a lot. I do not primarily read it to go to heaven. I read it because I love its lucidity. But you need to possess a better edition of the Bible to enjoy it.
