Smashwords Interview

Why do you love to write?
Writing gives me the magical ability of cooking up great stories. Mixing fact and fiction in right measure, lets me put a point across without being least didactic. It helps me give a sense of hope and pleasure to the reader.
How do you get new ideas?
I have this very bad habit of observing people. While on the bus or walking, I can't help myself from catching these small things that people do, which I'm sure they do unconsciously. While observing it's important to be oblivious to the world. It's only then you catch people unawares. After all, we are very different people when being watched and when not.
