About the Author:
He was born and raised in Hyderabad. After completing his education and a short stint in the private and government sectors, the author went abroad, spent almost four decades in Middle Eastern countries, and worked as a senior sales and marketing executive. He traveled extensively worldwide during his tenure and returned to his native place in 2016 when he was sixty-six.
Retirement becomes a perennial pain for anyone who lives an active and eventful working life unless they engage passionately in activities they hold dear and love to relish their golden years until death. From a young age, he was an ardent reader, and this passion clubbed with his flair for putting things on paper stirred him to wonder whether it would be possible to pursue his lifelong dream of becoming a novelist. Eventually, the impending blues spurred the author to make his dream reality and set off on a journey of a thousand miles to pen a thriller, “The Invisible Protectors,” published in Nov 2019. His second book, “The Gentle Hearts,” is about romance layered into human passion, inborn and nurtured, and the cruelties inflicted by savage brutes.
The writer lives with his wife in his birth city, and his two children are settled in western countries.
