Hey fellas, today I am introducing interview session to make my blog more lively. So, my first author whom I interacted is Falguni KOthari who wrote My Last Love Story. I must say she has beautifully answered all my questions. Lets start then:
What was the thought process behind this book?
My Last Love Story was inspired by different events that made an impression on me. One, I’ve known many cancer patients and survivors. I’ve seen the strength it takes for them and their families to deal with such a leeching disease and I wanted to pay tribute to these people, who in my mind are no less heroic than battle-scarred warriors.
The other event is related to a book: Tempted by Megan Hart. The plot is about an affair between three people, beautifully written and explained, but I hate the way it ends, even now. Back then, I’d only begun to write my first novel, and I guess the need to rewrite the climax of Tempted stayed with me and culminated in MLLS.
What all struggles you went through while writing this book?
The only plot point I struggled with was Simeen’s rape. I’d originally planned to write in only a threat to rape and not have her actually suffer that trauma, but the scene just wouldn’t flow well. And the aftermath of the scene also did not feel as urgent or logical. So, I brainstormed with a friend or two and came up with a muted version of the rape scene.
Do you usually write Romance genres or any other also?
I like writing about love and relationships in my books, so all my stories, even if they’re not categorized as romance, will have romantic elements in them.
Does this novel relate to you in any way?
Not directly, no. But, it relates to most households as most households witness death and disease in their lifetime.
Would you like to write more of Romance novels in future?
Absolutely. As I said, I love writing about love. J I especially love writing flirty scenes.
