Interviewer: How did you start writing in “Mirror image style”? Tell us something about that, our readers might want to know.
Piyush Goel:
Of Course, it is long back story when I was a kid I remember being told by my parents that I was very creative, I have always been that kid who tries to think out of the box. As I completed my Mechanical Engineering I got a job in Yamaha Motors, in the night shifts after completing my work, I always utilised time. I initially started with letters of English & Hindi, then gradually words and sentences. I used to ask my colleagues to dictate some sentences & tried to write them speedily that’s how I started writing in "Mirror Image".

Interviewer: What period of your life do you find you write about most often? (child, teenager, young adult)
Piyush Goel:
Well, I would say it’s a sweet conglomerate of my life’s experience at various stages whatever I have written or thought about for this book is what life told me/taught me throughout via this book, my prime objective would be to share my best of the experiences in brief to my readers. I hope you will like them and utilize them.

Interviewer: Do you think someone could be a writer if they don’t feel emotions strongly?
Piyush Goel:
Everybody has their own style of writing but I think a writer must feel strongly about their writings then only the readers will feel the same.

Interviewer: Any advice you would like to give to aspiring writers?
Piyush Goel:
Yes...why not- be honest & be real to your readers one thing you should remember that whenever a thought or an idea clicks into your mind write it down somewhere immediately keep a note book always where you sleep near your pillow. I firmly believe ideas which came in night works.
