Smashwords Interview

This is your first attempt of writing a novel. Why did you choose romance as your genre?
Yes, this is my debut novel. I am a big romantic at heart but have never been in a relationship so far. Sometimes my emotions take the front seat; I must say I am a dreamer and I do believe in soul mates and that I may soon find someone with whom I may fall in love. This is not only the reason to have chosen romance as my genre. As a writer I believe I should write only what is worth reading. So, for all those who are romantic and are looking to connect to some book, this book should be a good starting point.
How was the writing process? How did you develop each character?
I had started writing this story without a plan. When I got the idea of writing this story, it was late at night. It was almost 4:00 AM. My initial inspiration was the story of my cousin’s life which ended in a rather tragic manner. But eventually I had to add a lot of drama and emotion to make this story sound fictional as well as gripping. I did some research and chose names for my characters. I dreamt of writing novels right from childhood but it never happened till date. At this point in life I did not have any plan of writing a book. In fact I dreamt more of writing film scripts. So, I just opened screenwriting software and then wrote the first scene of the bus stop in Manhattan where John meets Sarah. I continued to write till I completed my screenplay. One day I thought I must turn it into a novel. So, both my dreams could be fulfilled. Sarah is a character with whom I can fall in love and I have tried to add some elements of my life in the character of John. All other characters were built during the process and have grown with the story. Overall I enjoyed the process. I requested a feedback from my friends and their honest criticism helped me a lot. I also worked with some other writers to improve the quality of my work.
