About K Kishmot

K.Kishmot was born in Tehran somewhere in the late nineteen sixties or early seventies. He is British and Iranian, half and half. For a long time he lived in London. He has written a number of screenplays and made short films. He has also written songs. Ghosts Haunt Aftermaths is Kishmot's second novel. It was finished ostensibly in 2001 but Ghosts Haunt Aftermaths is only now nearly ready. Kishmot abandoned his third novel, To Find Love You Must Climb a Thornbush of Roses but around the same time he was creating a children's story. Kishmot's first novel Ten Days to Remus was written when he was sixteen and was a work of science-fiction. Kishmot is at work on his fourth novel, about the culture of billionaires and humanity's love-hate relationship with war. He is writing a new children's book and is planning to get back to film. Kishmot is again also writing screenplays and working on a few electronic ambient pieces of music.

One small quibble: 'joing' seems to be a typo for 'joining' and pretty much detracts from what is otherwise a lovely sentence. I do wish you would make the correction.
