INVISIBLBy Tarak Ghosh
 'INVISIBLE' is a story of a mysterious killer who kills guys after having sex. CCTV surveillance system never captures her. When she appears, sexy night turns into deadly nightmares; sexual pleasure turns into pleasure of death. When she disappears, she left behind venom infected dead bodies.

She is pretty with blue eyes, long brown hair, trim waist and slight hips. She is venomous, invisible and a sex maniac. This crime fiction also focuses on the deeper meaning of life & complexities of relationships.

Insurance agent Rick was her first target. One morning he was found dead in his apartment. CCTV footage reveals that the only person who entered Rick’s room before his murder was Mrs. Howard. However, physical evidences reveal the presence of another woman.
The task of solving the murder case fell to Detective Frank Davis. Meanwhile, Assistant Detective Robert Wilson was mysteriously killed.  He was sexually tortured before killing. However, he managed to record a shot of that mysterious killer.
Frank found a ray of light in the dark when he met Alex, a journalist friend of his Bengali wife Lily who led him to Chang Huwan.
Chang revealed a secret that was a common thread between all the men killed and the mysterious killer.

Interview with Norm Clark
1. You were born and raised in a military environment and you like to write action packed thriller novels. What is the chemistry between 'environment' and 'liking'?
The CIA and the military have an indepth working agreement, so to make the step from a militant background to the action/thriller genre was a natural progression for me.
2. Jack McDuff, the Agency's top rated covert agent. Please tell your readers how you created this character?
The first thing I did when I decided to write a novel was create a picture of Jack in my mind—a large thickset man with reddish-brown hair, a ruddy complexion, and hazel eyes. So, I opened the telephone book and selected a Scottish surname to fit his description. The CIA lured him from the Army Ranger service for black-ops duty, which gave him a military connection.
3. How did you choose the genre you write in?
Many friends through the years were Navy Seals and an ex-Air America pilot from the Viet Nam era. Their anecdotes and attitudes set the action/thriller tone for me.
4. How did you come up with the title of your book or series?
Titles should relate to the book’s storylines. In my first book, “Resurrected”, Jack McDuff is reassigned to a desk job when he learns of assassinations of his friends and fellow agents in Europe. He accepts an unsanctioned mission to track the killer and in the process resurrects his field agent status. The second book in the series is “The Saladin Strategy.” Jack uncovers a Jihadist scheme to replicate Saladin’s unification of the sects and tribes centuries ago to defeat King Richard during The Crusades. 
5. Tell us a little bit about your cover art ( The Saladin Strategy). Why did you go with that particular image/artwork?
The cover is a modern-day photo of the underground alleys in the old city of Jerusalem, which sets the cover in the story’s theme. Many readers have commented on the mystique of the cover, which drew them to the book.
6. Who is your favorite character from your books and why?
I would have to select my protagonist, as the story is built around him. However, we would have no story without an antagonist, and the minor characters are essential to create the richness and fullness required for a well-rounded story.
7. How about your least favorite character?  What makes them less appealing to you?
I must confess, I love them all.
8. When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer? Are you inspired by anyone?
I was probably in my mid-twenties when Ken Follett’s “The Eye of the Needle” planted the novelist seed for me. Unfortunately, life got in the way and delayed my dream for many years, but writing became my life when I could retire and begin my first book.
9. Is there any particular author or book that influenced you in any way either growing up or as an adult?
At about the age of eight years, I read “The Wizard of Oz” and became an insatiable reader.
10. Tell your readers a little bit about yourself and your first thriller "Resurrected."
My first writing project, “Resurrected,” gave birth to my new life as an author and soon taught me the dedication required to become an author of merit.
11. Are there certain characters you would like to go back to, or is there a theme or idea you’d love to work with?
Any of the ‘living’ characters created are eligible for inclusion in future work if the story dictates their involvement.
12. Is anything in your book based on real life experiences or purely all imagination?
The basic storyline is created in the imagination, however, many of my scenes and plot directions are based on anecdotes and experiences from real life.
13. Have you written a book you love that you have not been able to get published?
As an Indie Writer/Publisher, the answer is no. The responsibility to publish a quality product rests squarely on my shoulders.
14. In future what do we expect from you ? A new genre?
My immediate plan is to publish a third book in the current series. For the future, I might write a book in the mystery genre. Though the format differs from a thriller, the genres are considered quite similar. We’ll see what happens.
15. Why  readers like your books? Your opinion as a reader.
I’ll respond with my recent release as the topic since the reviews and comments rate “The Saladin Strategy” as a sure-fire best-seller candidate, which justifies the writing style I have developed. The complex plot dictates short chapters, which greatly reduces confusion describing simultaneous events and contributes to the flow of the story. The conflict grabs the reader in the first chapter and refuses to let go until the very end, which makes the book a legitimate page-turner.
My foregoing opinion as a reader is substantiated by the reviews and other reader comments, which fills me with pride for the quality book I have written.

Dead People On Holiday

"The living", they say, "are dead people on holiday". This book of this title is a ten-year testimony to one man's living death, concluding in acceptance and the chance of a kind of rebirth. The poetry here pulls apart the melancholy of encroaching age and irredeemable failure, with a candour which for most of us has to be kept stifled, silent, perhaps barely even thought. Yet this is a book to surmount despair. If these are life's ashes, from them a phoenix can rise - and one day, it will.

An Interview with the author of   "Yes! I MATTER"

About the author

Aakaanksha Singh was born in the royal family of Haldaur Estate(Bijnor), Uttar pradesh in the year 1975.
She spent most of childhood at the prestigious boarding school, Welham Girl’s School, Dehradun ’93 batch.
As a teenager she always, romanticized with ideas and imagination. Her father’s interest in quality education led her to Miranda House, Delhi University. Where she received her graduation in Philosophy Honours ’96 batch, along with some of the finest brains in India.

Married to a state services beaurocrat Manoj Singh in the year 1997, she chose to give her best to her family. During this time she proudly nurtured her two children Pradyumna aged 13 and Meenakshi aged 9. However she pursued her studies and went on to do her post graduation in English literature during this period. Currently, they are residing in Muzaffarnagar , Uttar Pradesh.
"As a writer I do believe that women just require their due respect. "
A.C.I.T. : You are from a royal family, well educated, a happy homemaker and a proud mother of two children. The plot of 'Yes! I MATTER' is based on the pain and pleasure of middle class house wives, their visions or awakening from dreams or a different beyond the basic needs. Why and how did this plot come to your mind?

I have undergone some feelings by self-experience, also experienced them through angst and dilemmas of family and friends. All I needed to do was to compile them and through my imagination knit an interesting heartfelt story.

As a writer I do believe that women just require their due respect.  : After six decades of freedom, do you think still women in India are the games of socio-economical extortion?   What does Savitri do that is so special? Do you think, she is the symbol of womankind of modern India or a symbol of the human race?

Yes Indian women still have to go a long way to achieve the true empowerment. Savitri is no special, she has a mind of her own but is tied down by various complexities. She is a symbol of the woman of modern India; who wants to keep the values intact but at the same has certain desires to find her own voice.

A.C.I.T. :. As a writer what is your opinion about finding it's way-out?

As a writer I do believe that women just require their due respect. If the almighty created Adam and Eve at one time. Why is there a difference here? So all the society needs is to give her, her fair share of space with dignity.

A.C.I.T. :. Why 'Yes! I matter'? Why not, 'No! I don't matter'?

That’s the question Savitri often asked herself; nurturing her family. Finally coming around the whole circle; she found the answer “….Yes! I matter”.

A.C.I.T. :  If 'Yes! I matter' is your first novel, why did you write it in English? Why not in Hindi, as it is your mother language and Indian national language too?

Hmmm, yes if it were in hindi I would have found more readers who could relate to it. But as I think in English it came out naturally in the English language. Rather the tone is hinglish as I would put it.

A.C.I.T. : After 'Hazar Churashir maa' and 'Rudali' by Mahaswetadevi, I think it will be a mile stone. What's your view about your own creation?

Well, it is a book written with a lot of heart and research through the years. Infact, I feel women have gone through the agony from generations. The pain I bring about is not the brutal one, but more to do with emotions that die an unheard death. My creation is the soul of every Indian woman. Her sensitivities will relate to them in one way or the other.

A.C.I.T. :  What inspires you most to write such a novel?

 The small town girl that feels the pain for all inspired me to write “Yes! I matter.”

A.C.I.T. : Between Savitri and you, do you find any similarity?
Rather Savitri is somebody I would aspire to be , a blend of everything.
A.C.I.T. : Which famous person, living or dead, would you like to meet, and why?
Nobody really, unless I have lived their life or known them closely how can I say about them. As for now I’d rather just be me. Discovering, faltering, learning and enjoying this one life that I have.
A.C.I.T. : What sociological problem hurts you more? 

Hypocrisy hurts me the most, rules of the game change as per their position in the world. The moment you are somebody society gives you a give-away.

A.C.I.T. :. Where do you feel free to sketch a male character? Or a female character?

Didn’t get it …If it means who will I feel comfortable sketching. It will obviously be the fraternity I’ve am in. Infact females is all I know. I am a all girls school and college product.

A.C.I.T. : When and how did you feel that you should write? Are you inspired by any one or it was just a basic instinct?

I always had this unnatural vivid imagination. Infact the moment somebody speaks to me , a motion picture begins in my mind. The moment I logged onto facebook and got in touch with old friends. I got this idea that it could change people’s life. Especially for those living in remoter parts and proximities of meet school and college friends are more.

A.C.I.T. : Give us an insight into your main characters ('Yes! I matter')

Savitri the protagonist is a beautiful lady both outwardly and inwardly. She knows no other world than her husband and children for the seventeen years of her life. Until she begins to realize that her identity is being lost.
Then there is Shiva who is the catalyst that stirs her life from self-realization to self-actualization.
Her mother, who has suffered all along, Savitri’s sacrifice wasn’t enough to keep her happy. Symbolizing that generations have suffered and it is only the strength that can keep you sustainably happy.
Her friends Sneha, Pooja and Anju who are modern and small-towners; each having there own stories like us all.
Her maid, who symbolizing that women of all classes , the position of ‘women’ remains the same.

A.C.I.T. :. What are your ambitions for your writing career?

Now the children have grown up , I plan to take up writing more seriously. As of now I am completing the sequel to “Yes! I matter” a youthful approach to what love is?
Aakaanksha Singh
