February Fervour: Monthly Missives from The Dream Pedlar
Beam me up, Scotty! 😄

Hello, Dreamer!

I know you weren't expecting this — I wasn't either — but I have a new little book out! It's a short fantasy story titled Mrs. D'Souza's Dispute with God. How fun and intriguing is that?!

Two things were annoying Mrs. D’Souza. One, the fact that she was dead. And second, the line of dead folks waiting to meet their Maker was insufferably long and impossibly docile.

Restless and teeming with questions, she decides to take matters in her own hands and sets out to find God. Not a big deal, really.

Except for one small thing. How do you seek someone when you don’t even know what they look like?

Both the ebook and paperback are currently available on Amazon. They'll go up on other retailer platforms in the coming months.

The reason for this unexpected but entirely delightful release is that the March edition of the International Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Authors (IASFA)'s newsletter will contain an introduction written by none other than yours truly!

I was super thrilled when the opportunity to write a note to the IASFA's audience came up late last year and jumped at it right away.

In it, you'll read all about how I came to write fantasy fiction, how Indian gods, the Amar Chitra Katha comics I read growing up, and my favourite authors—Neil Gaiman, Erin Morgenstern, and Christopher Pike—influenced my life and writing journeys.
