Impassioned: I don’t have the strength to stay away from you anymore.
ME: Then don’t!
Impassioned:  How different a feeling it is to stay on the main stream and then say it here.
ME: Of course. On the main stream, I just thought it was chatter without any meaning.
Impassioned: It was never mere chat, and still isn’t. Only you understood it now.
I smiled.
ME: Yes, I guess so.
Impassioned: Onaiza!
ME: Yes?
Impassioned: Asher!
Oh!! He was finally telling me his name. Wow! Just wow!
ME: Nice to meet your, Asher :)

Author Interview


What would you have done differently if you were the main character of your book?

I would’ve tried to reshape the life of my protagonist.

What was your inspiration behind this book? 

There are many love stories where the male protagonist meets the female protagonist and love happens but we have never read about on-line relationships, chat-room friendships where two strangers meet and fall in love. I want to write about one such story that is unique in it’s own way. That’s how came up with Before Time.

Why did you become a writer?

Well, writing was always my passion since grade school. I usually participated in essay writing competitions at school and later on, when I entered university my teachers motivated me into writing a story. Since then, my pen just flows over the paper with my stories.

Do you have a favorite author or authors?

I have numerous favorite authors but my favorite ones are Judith McNaught, Julie Garwood, Jude Deveraux, Allie Gail and Stephanie Meyer.

Do you like to write your books in a continuing series? 

Yes, I always prefer writing series as it gives me a chance to keep my characters alive for a little longer. 

What kinds of books do you like to read in your spare time?

I’m a typical Romanceaholic so I prefer romantic stories. I spent my free time mainly on Wattpad, reading stories of unpublished aspiring authors.

As a reader and writer I think it is important to get to know your fans and make a connection with them as an author who takes the extra step to hear what their fans think and want in their continued writing is continued success and key to selling more books .Do you agree with that?

I agree. I prefer listening to my reader’s opinions and comments on my stories. 

Do you cry when writing sad scenes?

Emotions are an author’s strongest weapon and it happens that sometimes when you are well into your story, tears do come. I cry a lot when I read sad scene so definitely whenever I write sad scenes, I do cry sometimes.

Did you have a Cover Designer?

Yeah, I have a cover Designer.

Who is your fictional boyfriend or girlfriend crush?
