 Welcome! When you began as an author, were you inspired by anyone?

I have always admired Issac Asimov for writing science fiction in a very simplistic way. 

Christopher Nolan is another inspiration who, as a director-writer, works very passionately on his ideas and is able to yield simplicity to complex subjects via his films. 

From a superhero-stories perspective I love the working-philosophy of Stan Lee. His idea of having a superhero who has character defects and problems makes his stories very realistic.

Why did you choose superhero as a genre?

I have always loved watching superhero movies and TV series. 

Batman the animated series, Young-justice and Watchmen had been my favorites for quite some time. 

Like other readers of this genre, I love how superheroes solve problems which seem insurmountable at first. 

For me superheroes represent a hope in an otherwise dark world and I wish to share the same hope with my readers.




Do you have any favorite superheroes?

Blue Beetle is one of the underrated superheroes which isn’t talked about a lot. 

At first it seems like he has iron-man like powers with a suit, but they come from his mysterious scarab, which make the character very unique.

Tell us more about the current series you are writing?

My current series is “Superheroes of the Multiverse”. 

The first book in this series is Invincika, which is an origin story. 

This fast-paced action-packed novel takes place in a parallel world and was published on 25th April  this year. 

The second book in this series, the sequel, Serpent’s Reign is available on pre-order and will be published very soon, on 27th June.




Did you do any research for your recent book?

Yes, I had to do some research as well as fresh thinking. 

I had to dig deeper and understand how superheroes behave and function. 

A superhero is a human with extraordinary powers but for me a superhero won’t just start designing their costume as soon they know they have powers. 

They’d be afraid of their powers; or may not understand them. 

Many of them would be grossly misunderstood by people around them. 

They may end up making terrible mistakes and those may lead them onto a dark path, then they become supervillains.




She tries to save the world ...

... but can she save herself?

Ulka trained besides the Sigma, but unlike them, her powers remained dormant.

Until a ballistic weapon finally awakened her hidden abilities and flipped her world upside down.

As Ulka struggled with her new found powers, a Magnetar raced toward earth, causing tides, volcanoes and tremors. The super-humans sent to counter the Magnetar never returned, and Ulka is the world’s last hope.

Even if she succeeds, there’s a much bigger threat lurking in the shadows, waiting to unleash a fate worse than death.

If you like superhero stories with riveting action sequences, you will love this first book in the series.
