Do you plan everything or just let the story flow?

For my most recent book, I actually planned out the layout and how I would tie each inspirational story together to make the book flow. Usually though, if I am writing a novel or something different, I just let my writing flow and go back to make edits later.

Do your characters ever want to take over the story? 

I sometimes do have that problem where I include too much of one character in the story. Therefore, I always have to remember to get everyone involved :)

What is your favourite food?

My favorite food is vegetable lasagna! It's pretty healthy as well. Make it for me and I'll love you.

Are you a morning person or a night owl?

I'm the type of person to stay up decently late at night, but I also wake up pretty early because I feel more productive when I get started with my day early in the morning.

Where do you dream of travelling to and why?

I would LOVE to travel to Rome and Italy, because I always hear about how beautiful they both are. Not only that, but they have famous landmarks...such as the Roman Coliseum.

Do distant places feature in your books?

In my first book, I included stories that took place all over the world! There were a couple from India and a couple others from the UK and United States as well.

Do you listen to music while writing?

I love listening to music while writing! I listen to more instrumental tracks though, because often the words in normal music can be a bit distracting.

Could you tell us a bit about your latest release?

My book released internationally at the beginning of June. It is being sold on Amazon and Barnes and Noble for the first couple of months. If sales are good, then it may be put into stores later as well.

What have you learned about writing and publishing since you first started?

I learned that writing is an extremely fun, but also difficult process. I had to edit my book almost 5 times before release! Also, the publishing process takes much longer than I originally though (about 3 months for me). Overall though, the entire experience was incredible.

Is there anything you would do differently?

Not at all!

Who, or what, if anything has influenced your writing?

My family and Pramukh Swami Maharaj, because they both inspire me on an everyday basis.

Anything you would say to those just starting out in the craft?

Never give up! I had no idea even where to start before even deciding to put together a book manuscript.

Just start writing and figure out all the details later.

What are three words that describe you?

Risk-Taker, Go-Getter, Fun

What's your favourite book or who is your favourite writer?

My favorite book was Friday Night Lights: A Town, A Team, and a Dream by H.G. Bissinger

Blurb of your latest release or coming soon book

There are many negative things around us that bring us down in everyday life. As independent human beings though, we have the ability to determine what surroundings will ultimately affect us. My book offers several strategies and inspirational methods on how to make the most out of every day - to win no matter what.

I also have decided to donate most of the profits from all book sales to the Acumen fund, a worldwide charity investing in solutions to combat poverty. We can all make a difference in the world today!
