I am a self-published author. I have had several poems published in anthologies and published my own collection. I have written a book on online tutoring and also a historical memoir of my family's tool business over three generations.
This is my first book on Smashwords and the first illustrated children's book for the age group, 7 -12 years, that I have published.
When did you start writing?
I have always liked writing from a young age and remember writing poetry from the age of about 7.
What's the story behind your latest book?
The story is about a greedy and unkind frog who reforms himself by going to the desert and coming back a kinder and better frog. It is Buddhist based and was inspired by my practice of SGI Buddhism and loosely based on Buddhist principles and ideas,
How the Frog Became a True King should appeal to younger readers between the ages of 7 to 12, and anyone else who likes fairy tales! It is a story of how a very greedy and unkind frog’s life changes when he is sent to the desert, where he lives for a while with very little water, surviving on some help from a friendly cactus. This is about his journey and how he changes for the better.
