About the Author
I've been writing since High School, and it's always been a long-term dream to write a novel. Well, after getting married, having two babies who are now young adults, and working most of my life - I've finally been able to squeeze out that novel. But then submitting it to agents and publishers became in itself a practically insurmountable mountain. Though I do understand why the publishing world is so selective, because of the investment made in an author. But after several spurts of submitting my manuscript, 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. The first of a trilogy of books that, in essence, is a book borne, not just from my mind, but also from years of hard work. 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.
