Your Ad Spot

Interview with Sandeep Jatwa

Q.1 Tell us a little about yourself? Perhaps something not many people know?
A. I am a doctor, and a writer but not many people know that I am a very emotional person, that my eyes fill with tears when some news, events, even advertisements touches my heart. I don’t know why people hide their emotions but, I also do the same. (It is my secret that I don’t tell many people.)

Q.2 How many unpublished and half-finished book do you have?
A. I have one unpublished work - my first written novel. Second Chance is my first published novel but, it is not my first written novel. My first written novel is unpublished and right now I'm working on that. It would be a part of the series.

Q.3 Where do you get your ideas?
A. That’s an interesting question because I like this very much. I really like to think of concepts and ideas that can be converted into a wonderful story. I already have a series of novels and an individual novel in my mind. Now I need time to pen them down.

Q.4 What advice do you have for writers?
A. I do not feel; I am someone to give them advice. There are lots of brilliant writers we have. I think, aspiring writers must follow them.

Q.5 Do you try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want?
A. I don’t know what readers want because every reader is different, and so I try to serve what I can do the best. I try to touch their emotion, and if I could do this, they would like my work.
