Speaking about the method of writing, he asserts, I do not have any method to writing. There is no process. In many ways writing a novel is a mystery.Something inexplicable happens. And thoughts flow in the form of words. And my fingers tap on my computer keyboard. I believe divine inspiration comes into play. I am just a medium. The ideas and the thoughts come from a higher agency, the Almighty. A novel is a miracle.
