Can you tell us a little about yourself?
I would say I’m an accidental writer with an online community of thousands across the globe. I first gained international recognition after the launch of my book, Dream Beyond Shadows. Later, I also had one more book, named Life Unknown, another bestseller on Amazon, which is about my travels in India.

I used to live in the U.S. before quitting my job and letting go of my plans to build a life in America. Since then, I have been on a quest to discover the absolute truth of our existence which has inspired travels to distant lands. My desire is to create works that exemplify the rawness of “what it means to be a human being.”

My latest creative endeavor, UnHerd is a fictional tale of love, wisdom, and strength. Whilst I am no longer an active part of the digital world, I continue to keep writing books and deepening my craft to share my creations with the world.
