I don't read much of what I write because I worry about unintentionally borrowing something.
When I was a little boy, they called me a liar, but now that I am grown up, they call me a writer.
I'm still in love with what I do, with the idea of making things up, so hours when I write always feel like very blessed hours to me.
When I write something, every word of it is meant. I can't say it enough.
I do have a few little tattoos, but they were mostly done to cover scars because I'm so fair.
People think that because I write about India I must be trying to portray India in a way.
Although every writer dreams of getting it right on the first pass, very few succeed.
I do what I do because I like doing it. I'm well paid for it. I get far too much adulation compared with what it's worth.
I'm always a little worried when people have met me in person because I'm worried they'll be disappointed.
