Describe your desk
Mostly taken over by my giant 27-inch monitor, speakers and keyboard. Just a couple of books on it at the moment.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Kerala, India in a house full of books. Also, I am 90% blind. So this meant I was lousy at sports. But I became very good at reading. So that definitely helped to push me in the direction of writing both fiction and non-fiction.
