What is Predators and Prey about?
Predators and Prey is a dyed-in-the-wool thriller, set in India. It has a mix of technology, espionage, and a high-stake game of deception and ruthlessness. I would call it India’s first masala-tech-thriller!
What prompted you to write Predators and Prey, which is a mix of crime and mystery?
The origins were two-fold. First, I wanted to write about the dangers to life and liberty that pervasive technological surveillance presents. But I wanted to couch this information in a form that people would want to read – a page turner. I also wanted to write a thriller that I would want to read. The very first scene I wrote was the chase sequence. From that start began the book, plot, characters, their arc, conflict and resolution.
How has your journey as an author been so far?
Exhilarating! A learning experience. A dream fulfilled. A journey that lies ahead and which tells me there is a lot to learn and explore. Books to be written, thoughts expressed through words, emotions to be explored. I must mention that TreeShade did everything it could to make a new author feel wanted, valuable, and appreciated! No, this is not a plug, but a genuine appreciation of the fantastic support I received.
Whom would you recommend your book to?
People who want to read thrillers that are grounded in reality and that will make you think that such events could actually happen. People who want to see the words come to life and paint a vivid, dynamic image in front of them will like my book. I have had some teenagers who have mentioned they loved my book. I have had at least a few septuagenarians who have told me that they could not put Predators and Prey down! That’s quite a range!
What is your work schedule like when you are writing?
I usually have a hectic work schedule. But I find the time either before work starts or after work ends to write. My writing involves a lot of thinking and sometimes it takes me many years to get the story right.
