Interviews

Hi Krishna K Verma, thank you for agreeing to this interview.
Oltobooks : Tell us a little about yourself and your background?
Krishna K Verma : Hello, I’m Krishna K Verma. Reader. Dreamer. Published author. I’ve been fond of English Literature since I was eight. I love words. I used to jot new words learnt from stories I read. Then, I used to look for the opportunities to play with them in school assignments & debates which rewarded me with appreciation from teachers many a time. Apart from writing, I love travelling, reading books & listening music. I started writing when I was in the second year of my graduation. The city of joy confronted me with so many emotions that I started jotting them down on my diary and began writing short stories. Then, I wrote my first novel, “The Twirled November” in 2014. The paperback was published in 2017, which got overwhelming feedback from the readers throughout the country. After completing my post graduation, I worked as EXIM Assistant, as EXIM Executive, and currently working as a Business Development Manager. I moved from Kolkata in 2016. Currently, I live at my ancestral place in an outskirt town in Bihar. I write romantic stories with slices of comedy. Recently, I am writing a mystery-thriller story alongside one romantic story. Nothing but the love of my wonderful readers always encourages me to write more and more.
Oltobooks : What are your ambitions for your writing career?
Krishna K Verma : My ambition is to get my book(s) adapted into movie(s) featuring lead actors of the country. However, my long term goal is to write as much books to have my own library of books while spreading as much smiles in my wonderful readers' life.
Oltobooks : When did you decide to become a writer?
Krishna K Verma : I’ve been involved in writing since I was eight. However, I officially started writing in 2011 and completed my debut book in 2014.
Hi Toby Oliver, thank you for agreeing to this interview.
Oltobooks : Tell us a little about yourself and your background?
Toby Oliver : I was born in London, England, and spent most of my life working for the government. I grew up in a lovely Georgian House in an area called Kennington. After leaving full-time employment in 2007, I guess I fulfilled two lifelong ambitions, firstly moving to the beautiful countryside of West Sussex with my family and much loved Yorkshire Terrier and King Charles Spaniel, where I love nothing more than walking my dogs on the South Downs, and exploring its breath taking views. As a child I was encouraged to read, I suppose the catalyst of both my love of reading and writing was a novel called the Children of the New Forest, set in the time of the English Civil War by Frederick Marryat. It was the first time a book not only captured my imagination but transported into the lives of the characters. It was for me a pivotal moment.

Oltobooks : When did you decide to become a writer?
Toby Oliver : As I said earlier, my inspiration was the kid's novel Children of the New Forest. Shortly afterward, I began writing short stories, they may have been only a couple of pages long, but I was always encouraged by my mom, who was an avid reader, and often, as a child, made up her own magical night-time stories.

Hi Naseha Sameen, thank you for agreeing to this interview.
Oltobooks : Tell us a little about yourself and your background?
Naseha Sameen : Naseha was born in a town encapsulated by two rivers, inhabited by people who celebrate on the face of natural calamities. It is a one-millennium old city, Cuttack which breathes of tales if only one can listen. Silent starry nights, noisy cracking dawn, lazy afternoon loaded with champak odor, giggling evening and early retreat of the day, all planted seeds of stories in her. After Master's Degree, she moved to the hustling metropolis of Gurgaon where she crunched numbers and provides realistic strategies to corporates for a living. Once out of office, she quickly became the dreamer that she is and starts writing while watching the foggy, slumber like morning of the metropolis that she fell in love the moment she stepped in Gurgaon. After 14 years, life gave her an opportunity to move to a new city. She parted with Gurgaon as friends and has moved to the city of Pearls, Hyderabad to make the city her own and her, a part of the city.
Oltobooks : What are your ambitions for your writing career?

Oltobooks : When did you decide to become a writer?
Naseha Sameen : 2020 - when I finally mustered courage to send my manuscript to publisher

Marshie Morgan : Howdy, I am from Texas and live in a small town with one traffic light.
Oltobooks : What are your ambitions for your writing career?

I started out writing for my job the company newsletter and then years later I am writing non fiction to help folks and the hospitality industry.

Oltobooks : When did you decide to become a writer?
Marshie Morgan : There was no set day or time. I have been journaling since I was a young child. One day I may sit down and write that autobiography.

Latest Poem

Our untold story waits for its explosion

As our love ages more than we know.

The first time I saw you under a peepal tree

With your hair flowing in the air like

It has escaped all the aches and your lips

Weaving stories of a fairytale, I knew

It was you who warmed all my particles of heart

And now they are restless for an explosion;

An explosion of vigorous love, care and bond.

Everytime I sublime myself in the sweet essence of you,

I can feel the explosion of eternity occuring in my skin.
