#Wednesdays are for Writers: 15 Questions with Rohini Singh – Author of the book: The Time Manipulator’s Son

SOOP asked our Dear Author Rohini Singh 15 Questions, to know more about her writing journey and the correlation of her passion for writing.

Question 1. Where are you from?
 
Rohini’s Answer:

 I am from the twin-island of Trinidad and Tobago. I live in Trinidad.

Question 2. Tell us a little about your self ‘ie your education Family life etc’.
 
Rohini’s Answer:

 I have a BSc in Computing. I am an Information Technology Specialist, specialized in Web, Database and Application development and management. I am from a small family and I love being around children. Don’t have any kids however.

 
Question 3. Tell us your latest news?
 
Rohini’s Answer:

Due to my hectic schedule, I’m not getting as much time to complete my second novel. I have written a couple of short stories and came third in a “Harry Potter” writing contest.With some good news, the National Library in Trinidad is interested in using my book for school libraries. I only got the confirmation. No further development has taken place yet. 

Question 4. When and why did you begin writing?
 
Rohini’s Answer:

As fas as I can remember, I always loved getting lost in a story or sometimes, in my mind, I rewrote books and movies with an ending I preferred. 

 
Question 5. When did you first consider yourself a writer?
 
Rohini’s Answer:

At age 16.  But there are no literary agents in Trinidad up to this day. Thank goodness for the Internet and small publishers. Sometimes I toy with the idea of becoming one. 

 
Question 6. What inspired you to write your first book?
 
Rohini’s Answer:

I have started several books which I never completed. However, observing a group of kids from diverse backgrounds playing gave me the idea for TTMS.
 
Question 7. Do you have a specific writing style?
 
Rohini’s Answer:

My genre is sci-fi/fantasy. I have a very vivid imagination with very descriptive and out of this world ideas. My writing style has been compared to J.K. Rowling.

 
Question 8. How did you come up with the title?
 
Rohini’s Answer:

I believe, in essence, it summarized the entire book.

 
Question 9. Is there a message in your book that you want readers to grasp?
 
Rohini’s Answer:

Yes definitely! Being different should not matter once you embrace who you are and develop your strong points. If kids were to focus on what they can do and not bother with what society dictates, they will learn to love themselves and become the people they were meant to be.

Question 10. How much of the book is realistic?
 
Rohini’s Answer:
 
The food and elements related to Trinidad and the Caribbean. The feelings I develop my character (even though they are aliens) cause the reader to feel what they are feeling, see what they are seeing, be where they are etc. People have stated that they can actually see the story unfolding as a movie while reading. (Hence, the comparison to j.k. Rowling.
 
Question 11. Are experiences based on someone you know or events in your own life?
 
Rohini’s Answer:

Some of them. Like an overweight teenage girl struggling to lose weight. Siblings squabbling at mealtime. Love of family and friends. How superstition can control some people’s lives.

Question 12. Do you see writing as a career?
 
Rohini’s Answer:

Yes, I hope soon.

Question 13. Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?
 
Rohini’s Answer:

As far back as I can remember, I was always intrigued with fantasy and fiction where you can create your own world and people and exactly as you want it to be.

 
Question 14. Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?
 
Rohini’s Answer: 

For me its time to actually write. My imagination is really vivid, so I’m never out of ideas. 

Question 15. Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?
 
Rohini’s Answer:

Patience and constant editing and refining are so vital to delivering the final product for publication.
