ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Saheb Sardar is a downtown boy who is living a simple ordinary life like each one of us.
I don't know why, but I always miss the adventure that we all used to have in our childhood in my daily life. So when I started asking myself what I could do to fill this ordinary life with thrill and adventure, the answer appeared. I'm not good at many things, but reading and writing is something in which I'm not bad (except cooking *-*). So here I am, with some generous help from Notion Press, trying to serve you something unique. So it's my request to please be patient when you read this book and devour everything that is filled with my mistake. It's funny, but I believe that we, as readers, hold one of Gluttony's sins. By this sin, we consume each and every word of a writer's thoughts. So dig in and show me the light of perfection for the future.
Q. Can you tell us a bit about your book - My Friend Is A Sociopath?

And at the end of the stories, there are some different prospects and points of view shown which is quite rare in any mystery or detective books.
Q. What three things should readers expect from a Saheb Sardar book?
As you can see, I am a novice author who literally gives his all by creating something new and unique which is rare in a detective or in any mystery novel. This was challenging but in the end "My friend is a Sociopath" was born.
Q. If your book is adapted into a movie, who will play your main character?
This is a great question. I literally thought this many times. If it's made into a Bollywood movie then the hero will be Rajkummar Rao and if it's adapted into a Hollywood movie, then the hero will be Daniel Radcliffe.
Q. Can you tell us something about your character Avhi Sarkar?
If I said even a little bit about AVHI, it will be a huge spoiler. But I can only say that he is a different and quirky character. His way of thinking is normal and funny sometimes but most of all he is a free-spirited person.
Q. How did you come up with the idea of writing My Friend Is A Sociopath? What is your inspiration?
Well, you can say that it just appeared in my mind. I did write some small poems or sketches on social media for my self-satisfaction. You can find some on my Facebook page - @sahebthebaka. But my friends said that I need to think big about my writing. So I came up with the idea of writing my book - MY FRIEND IS A SOCIOPATH. My biggest inspiration is obviously Mr. SHERLOCK HOLMES, the greatest mind of all time.
