Since the age of 18, I’ve been writing and submitting stories. Most of these have been science fiction and fantasy short stories. Here is my bibliography. A number of these stories have been published. If you want to read some, I guess I’d recommend Corridors (very short) and The Girl Who Escaped From Hell (a bit longer).
I’ve been maintaining this blog since the summer of 2008 (though it’s only been regularly updated since about 2010). I used to blog on political topics, but nowadays I tend to steer clear of those. I mostly blog about books, my writing, and the writing life. Sometimes I write about more confessional topics, including my sobriety (ten years as of Jan 2020) and my sexuality and gender orientation.
I’m super-tall (6′ 7″). That’s almost exactly two meters, for those of you who swing that way.
I’m of Indian descent. My parents both grew up in Mumbai and came to the U.S. for graduate school.
From summer of 2012 to spring of 2014, I lived in Baltimore (while I attended graduate school). Upon graduating, I moved to Berkeley, California. Now I live in San Francisco with my wife, a dog, a cat, and a daughter
