Byom Parida grew up in the small village of Odisha, which is located on the eastern coast of India. For the past fifteen years, he has lived in Dublin, Ireland, with his wife Bandita and their two children, Amlan and Anaya. He is an IT consultant and an entrepreneur, but he has always had a passion for writing. This passion is what gives him the courage to sit down and write. With a few unpublished stories lying on his desk, he finally mustered the courage to showcase his writing with this first book. His next book, though still untitled, is slated to be released in 2016.
