About the author

I've wanted to write a novel since forever, but it's incredibly difficult to get into the traditional publishing world - a very exclusive business. Each rejection letter chipped away at my soul, and no matter how much I tried to be philosophical about it, it still hurt. So I finally decided to self-publish, with a hoped-for aim of at least contributing in some small way to making indie authors as relevant and as cool as indie film-makers. And so my first novel, 'The Ingenious, and the Colour of Life', is my contribution toward that aim. It's been a heart-wrenching, exciting, and nerve-racking journey. But ultimately if you, the reader, enjoy my work - the story it tells and the message it conveys - then that will have made every step of my journey worthwhile. I hope so.
