Q. Hi Mike, and thank you for agreeing to this interview. Your upcoming book ‘The Genie Hunt ’ is due on 10th May 2017, and is an amazing read. Congratulations! Tell me a little about yourself and your background?

I was raised on a tobacco farm and enjoyed growing up in the country, where I roamed through gorgeous, unspoiled forests and learned to hunt and dress wild game. The land itself had many stories to tell. The North Carolina Piedmont was a major trade area for the Native Americans who lived there for thousands of years, and I was fascinated by the arrowheads you could find in plowed fields. Confederate General Johnston mustered his men nearby, and we often scoured the area for artifacts the soldiers left behind.

Week #1: What I #Read this Week? 

The first week of the new year started with some variations that I didn’t know it would have for me. It was like a sine wave (if you know what I mean, if you don’t you can check it here), this week. Well,  what does it matter,  we are not here to discuss it, instead, we are here to talk about books you and me both read this week.

One thing I’d like to say is that this year I am again taking part in Hindustan Times‘s magazine, HTBrunch: #BrunchBookChallenge (a reading challenge). First time when I did it, was in 2014.

Here is the link to full set of rules you have to keep in mind while taking this challenge. I am done with four books out of 36 including one Indian Origin writer Siddhartha Mukherjee and his lastly published book The Gene: An intimate history.
