Hi there! My name is
Set in the fictional land of Pegasus, the story is about Rose Haydon, a seventeen-year-old orphan, living a hard life with her Granny and her sister Crystal, who is mentally decrepit and an astral traveller as well. Besides attending school, Rose has a gruelling routine- part time job, chores at home, schoolwork, providing for the daily household expenses and saving the greater part of her income for Crystal’s brain surgery. Her only comfort zone is Robby, a millionaire’s heir, her best friend, who she met three years ago quite by chance when he first came to live in Pegasus with his aunt.
Robert Williams, Robby, the sapphire-eyed millionaire’s son with looks ‘befitting those of an artist’s canvas’ is definitely the hottest topic in Pegasus High School. An ambitious genius with exemplary soccer skills and an inscrutable magnetism, he is quite “the perfect PRINCE CHARMING that the immature little dolls dreamt about”. However, Robby is hugely oblivious to all that drool and prefers carrying a grave, ‘Mercurian image’ within the walls of the school. But, to the envy of all the ‘female inhabitants’ of PHS, there’s none so adorable, caring, hilarious and overprotective as he, when it comes to the aloof, detached and rather reticent, Rose Haydon, who, though an ‘alien’ to all, is quite the contrary in Robby’s presence.
The much-envied camaraderie between Rose, the narrator, a seventeen-year-old orphan and Robby, the rich, dazzling Apollo, takes an unusual turn when he tries to hold back a dark, impenetrable secret. Nothing that Rose can do, helps her get to the bottom of his unspoken agony and it wrecks her mental peace, leaving her restless and distraught. As time speeds past, Rose gets her ‘new beginning’ but her life shatters beyond repair soon after when she learns that he has to leave.
“Rose?” he called… finally.
I didn’t answer.
He simply put his arm around my shoulder and pulled me to his side. My heart yearned to hold him yet my eyes chose to avoid his gaze. He didn’t break the silence…
His body was exceptionally warm and tense. His muscles were stiff beneath the skin. The same fear crept back to me. A fear of losing him. How I hated myself! I was aiming to touch the stars with a broken wing…”
Robby leaves with a promise but little is she aware of the lurking inevitability waiting at hand, grinning a bone-chilling grin and smiting all the threads of her innocent dreams.
Recounted in the fictional land of Pegasus, the romantic thriller also explores a rare psychic ability in the character of ‘Crystal’, Rose’s little sister, that lends a surreal aura to the dark mystery that unfolds as the pages are turned.

Q&A with VincentHow would you increase literacy?
Literacy is not about how many educational degrees and diploma certificates adorn your showcase. It's about how many times you make the effort to bend down and pick up that stray piece of paper, lozenge wrapper, or perhaps a sandwich foil lying on the floor. According to me literacy is synonymous to education of the soul. It's a state of mind. Reading books doesn't always help to achieve that. Hence, I'd just want us humans to be a bit more alert and empathetic to their surroundings.What are the ingredients for a blockbuster story to you?
A blockbuster story should not only be a feast for the eyes but also a feast for the soul. It should contain a message. There should be some considerable speed in the plot. There should be sufficient twists and surprises. The characters should be properly developed and the ending, well defined.What are your top stories that entertain and/or inspire you?
Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer, John Green's The Fault in our stars and... Paper Towns to some extent but I feel the ending could be a little better. If you could see me now by Cecelia Ahern. Paulo Coelho's The Alchemist and Eleven minutes are very much inspiring. Erich Segal's Love Story and The Class are very entertaining.Do you have any advice to aspiring writers?
My only advice to aspiring writers is- don't let your writings be a second grade version of some other work. Like, after the phenomenal success of Twilight saga and Harry Potter, many aspiring authors tend to write plots on Vampires and Magic schools. This spoils innovation and individuality. They should try to come up with something new, a new idea, a new concept. Another thing I'd like to say is, they should write what they are afraid to write and choose words which are easy to understand.Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?
My interest in writing originated in my very childhood. I loved reading and used to lose myself in the stories I read. I used to think about them continuously, imagine myself to be a part of that world. This often made me marvel about how much power a writer has on the minds of the readers. They create new worlds, new people, new places! I wanted to be a creator too. That's what made me start writing.
