BEATRICE FERNANDO
Genre: Non-Fiction (memoir)

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.

I have 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.
