What’s next in store for you? Any ideas for a new book? Also, The Almond Tree has received some amazing reviews, so much so that it has been spoken on par with Khaled Hosseini’s The Kite Runner. Does that feel like it’s too much pressure, especially since readers will now have high expectations from whatever you write next?

You have predominantly studied Arts. How easy or difficult was it to incorporate so much of Science in The Almond Tree? Has Science always interested you or did you have to develop an interest in it in order to make it such an important part of the novel?
