I am Achala Rashmini Perera, the author of ‘The Candy Town’ I love trying crazy things and live in my dreams. I am a person full of love and happiness and my yearning desires is to make every soul happy.

In my writing I have used poetry in certain chapters that would entertain the readers for a moment, as according to my knowledge I felt that creating poems in between would compress wide chapters or explanation into creative lines that would have a rhythmic flow yet meaningful as much a chapter could hold.

My other book the Golden Fields is a village surrounded by many paddy fields. And in this beautiful village lives a boy called Binara who is trapped between love, pain,jealousy, happiness, sorrow and revenge, which led his life into endless pain and sorrow. Golden Fields tells a story between happiness, love and death. Binara realized that happiness and love does not remain forever.

I wrote this story to emphasis that our world is enveloped between good and bad. It is our choice to decide what is good for us. Just like Binara who was naughty but sensitive and later becomes strong, serene and helps others in their miseries. He understands that life, birth and death continues.

My recent poetry book is "Prisoner". Prisoner is a poem of a lonely lover locked up behind the bars, he is innocent yet the law has found him guilty in a murder case. There are many incidents as this prisoner; sometimes we become prisoners of our own thoughts. I described incidents gently with rhyming words and poetic lines to let you open the mind into a world that perhaps you have never been or thought before.
