I Always Look For A Detective Novel In A New City As It Speaks More Than Any Travel Magazine – Zac O’ Yeah
For Zac, watching an English flick or reading an English Detective Novel sounds uniform as the genre doesn’t coincide. Over the years, he has binged watched plenty of Kannada movies and he concludes it by calling a Classical Indian Film a mix of Action, Comedy, and Romance.
This was his first inspiration to start penning down his thoughts into a full-fledged desi detective novel and his bucket list ‘to write a desi detective novel’ was about to accomplish.
Zac preferred being a writer as his bucket list as he had a chance to explore characters. Not just that, he felt it was a luxury to fantasize subjects which grabbed his attention. Initially, he started to write while traveling and then started working on detective novels. Thanks to his experience at Majestic, a place in Bangalore which inspired him to build the novel.
He never wanted to stereotype his novel like many other Indian counterparts do and also following the westernized roots of building characters. He makes sure his tone of writing has a desi touch.
Over a period of time, after taking the long walks, meeting crazy people and witnessing few Kannada flicks, Zac came up with a desi-fiction novel which is called as Mr. Majestic.
As he dreamt, came the expected. Hari Majestic was not just a character in his novel, he was a reflection of Zac’s observational experience at Bangalore. For instance, the protagonist here doesn’t follows the westernized roots; he loves to eat masala dosa and a filter coffee to sip.
After accomplishing his bucket list of writing a novel, Zac has currently launched the sequel called, Hari – Hero A for Hire and a third one is in the pipeline.
Zac has another bucket list of becoming an astronaut and eagers to pen down a novel on his experience. Well, impossible is nothing. Isn’t it?
