What inspired you into writing?
I think my mom was fed up with my misadventures and wanted the world to know about her suffering, so we wrote the book together.
How did it occur that you can write a book?
At school (Fajr Academy, Karachi) I was given the task of writing a book in Urdu as a project. So I thought why not try it in English, too.
Were you ever scared it might not get attention?
I wasn’t too bothered about it, as I am a happy-go-lucky person.
How many times did you have a writer’s block?
Alhumdulillah, I never ran out of ideas. In fact, I did not mention some incidents in the book deliberately, as they are too embarrassing to share.
