Though I bugged him with many questions, Kevin was patience enough to answer every question in detail, to acknowledge his reader fans:

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
I’m 22 years old and I’m a graduate of History hon. From St Stephens College. I studied in Faith academy. I have been writing for the last 8 years and reading for last 10.

Why do you write? What keeps you motivated?
The thrill of creating a scene, a moment, a twist, a character that keeps me motivated !

Do you believe in writer’s block? How did you choose the genre you write in?
I do believe in writers block and the reason I chose mythology, it’s because it’s the closest to a fantasy genre and I love fantasy.

Sucks for writers but readers enjoy it.

Whats your favorite genre? why ?
Fantasy. It’s an escapist fiction!

There is a myth duology, triology and (n)ology may not work in literature, what you feel ?
Actually they do more than I thought they would. Many publishers look for a series and I’m cool with it since we live in a serialized format world and movies are going down and stand-alone Especially mythology aren’t selling that much unless you are a popular writer. No matter how much a writer hates being thrown off a cliff in the end, they seek to see what happens in the end.
