I can't imagine a life without books. To me, they are doorways into other dimensions and lives. An opportunity for a myriad of adventures and experiences.
And, every so often, when life becomes overwhelming with its many challenges, I remember the ancient greek philosoper Atticus, who said, "The beautiful thing about reading old books, is realizing all your struggles aren't a 'you' thing but a 'human' thing." I believe this holds true for books and storytelling of any kind, old or new.
Needless to say, adding my own literary endeavors to the mix has aways been one of my greatest dreams.

In the fall of 2013, I took a one-year sabbatical during which I began writing my first book. 'Paralian'​ was subsequently published with Matador on 28th May, 2016. Since then the vivid memoir has won two literary awards. It has also been named as “Recommended Read” by several book review platforms including Bookmuse, LoveReading, Bookbag, Reader’s Favorite, etc.

Currently (most days during the commute to my day job) I'm working on my second book. In my spare time, I enjoy cuddling with our three cats, spending quality time with my soul mate, reading, watching movies, scuba diving, blogging, and writing articles for various cultural/literary online platforms.
