Will he ever be able to unlock himself ?

Will he be able to prevent the rise of the Morningstar?
So let's have a little fun and find out some of your secrets. Shall we?
Jacquie: As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Kevin: I always wanted to be an actor. But when I got in the habit of writing, I knew I had to be a screenplay artist or a writer.
Jacquie: How did you feel when you got your first 5 star review?
Kevin: It’s wonderful. I can’t express my joy. Though I dedicate this 5 star to all those people who said that my book will never be critically liked. Well, here it is to you guys.
Jacquie: What books have most influenced your life?
Kevin: The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho and the Fountainhead by Ayn Rand.
Jacquie: Who is your favorite hero/heroine/character from your own books? What about of all time?
Kevin: Caspar Socrates might be my favorite hero and even his sidekick Balthazar. They have a rocky relationship, insulting each other but at the same time caring for each other.
Jacquie: Most of my favorite authors are indie or self-pubbed, what made you decide to go that route?
 Kevin: I think because this route is warm and caring. It is filled with people that love books than anything in this world. And there are really helpful people, so I thought to go this route.
Jacquie: What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your books?
Kevin: I think it was the hardwork and dedication you have to put to write a book. When I was like eleven years old, I thought writing books is easy and can be done in a snap of a second. But no. It’s not. The process is enjoyable but at the time, you have to really give your best.
Jacquie: Any song or songs that could basically sum up the overall mood of your book?
Kevin: Doctor who, “I am the doctor”
Jacquie: What are your current projects? Can you share a little of your current work with us?
Kevin: Absolutely. My current project is based on Hindu Mythology. I want to produce India’s first superhero novel.
