Zeba Ali on her writing experience:
*Reading inspired me to write. I was in graduation when I started writing. It was not from the start that I wanted to be a writer. It was a course of time when I felt like I love writing.
*Firstly, my family were little sceptical because I was pursuing engineering and then on the middle of it, I was giving time to writing. So, they stated that I should not become biased with my education but when I successfully completed my post graduation while keeping writing as my dream, they are happy. They motivate me to take new step and publishing my debut novel was just possible because of my father.
*I had to do a lot of research for many parts of Beyond Our Melancholy. It’s set in Hyderabad and I am from Maharashtra and never been to Hyderabad. So, I had to look up to Google for the facts of Hyderabad.
*Writing really feels great. It feels like I am doing the thing that I love a lot. My readers and their unending support has always inspired me and I thank them all for their support.

*Beyond Our Melancholy was the first and the last name for the book. I had some idea about the plot so I thought this would be that apt title for my book.
*Fazal Bashir is my favourite character in the book from everyone. His realization of his past mistakes and his attempts to make his mistakes correct is the reaon for it. He is not rigid with his mistakes. He wants forgiveness from Allah and from the ones whom he hurt.
* The book would connect to the readers for it’s simplicity. It is simple in its wording and the portrayal. And it is the first Spiritual Romance in India having Muslim characters.
