IN CONVERSATION WITH THE AUTHOR.
1. Please introduce yourself and tell us when did your journey as a writer begin?
Ans : I am a learning & development professional & a health & safety trainer. Story telling has always been part of my profession but writing only began an year ago with Version One and a Half, which was about my childhood in a small town in ’80s India & how i have improved my life in 2018 using these memories.

2. The cover indicates crime & Action.
What is the motive behind choosing the title & the cover?
Ans : Crime & action thrillers have always been my favourite genre when it comes to movies. This genre has always fascinated me so I chose to write an action thriller for my first fiction project. Double One Zero (110) will be a series & Out of the Shadows being the first where the title character cones out of the shadows of a world hidden from everyone. Hence the title & the coverpage signify his coming out with a bang.
