I am a
Sri Lankan who spent the first 32 years in my homeland. I
started to write stories and poems when I was very young.
I grew up believing no one loved me and found comfort in turning
my painful experience into poems or short stories. My first
written novel was "For the lost soul." I was too
young to understand the process of publishing my work, and
didn't know who to ask for help. My classmates, friends and
relatives who praised my work read my stories. That was as
far as it went, but I never stopped writing.
an Associate Degree level of education in my country. I passed
the IDPM (Institute of Data Processing and Management) exam.
I've worked as an office administrator and translator. I owned
and directed my own computer learning school.
I am the
mother of a 24-year-old and a 6-year-old. I came to The United
States of America in 1989. Since I've lived in USA I have
worked in child-care, office administration and I am the foster
mother to a 13-year-old special needs child. Being in this
country has given me the courage and the freedom to talk about
my past and to be proud of what I have overcome. "In
Contempt of Fate" is my first English novel. Writing
this book had been a therapy for my soul, and once again I
found comfort in doing so.
