I'm a hardworking, simple guy and still looking at the world with a childlike wonder. I run, hikes, over-drink tea and coffee. I am a hardcore coder and I love to do that. And if I hadn't gone into coding, I probably would have gone into painting and cooking or investment banking. Being a Bengali, I eat a lot and love to play football. I am a big fan of world movies and a great admirer of Bergman, Kurosawa and Tarantino.
I live near Glamis Castle in the Angus Glens, Scotland, United Kingdom. I have a deep love for animals, nature, and the countryside and love writing about them. I have won several writing prompt competitions on Voweler and I am a named author on Paragraph Planet. My book A Little Dog's Prayer is available on Amazon. I was recently delighted and honoured to be awarded a diploma for my contribution to A Museum of Words. The César Egido Serrano Foundation and the Museum of the Word in plenary session have named me Ambassador of the Spanish language of my country in the world (Scotland). My motto is "Be kind, do no harm".

My greatest beauty secret is being happy with myself. I don't use special creams or treatments - I'll use a little bit of everything. It's a mistake to think you are what you put on yourself. I believe that a lot of how you look is to do with how you feel about yourself and your life. Happiness is the greatest beauty secret.
I was born in Orange, CA, a wonderful day I'm sure. I was joined by my twin brother who was determined to live with me until the age of 18, kind of a weird choice, but our parents insisted. Speaking of parents, my Father Jeff and Mother Nikki, they’re pretty cool I guess. During the childhood years, my twin and I spent the bulk of our time playing sports, getting good grades and, more or less, living in our own world. Since, oh I don't know, let’s call it 7 years old, we would create new comic book characters (Dr. Chemical was my favorite) to go along with the "real" ones that we read every day, crafted stories that we shook our heads at years later, and obsessed over Tolkien, Herbert, and anything else sci-fi or fantasy. I sailed through grade school, I coasted through Villa Park High School, still creating, but mostly playing sports and "finding myself." Had a few girlfriends, some laughs, and too much fun. I'm sure if any ex-girlfriends read this they wouldn’t like being described as "some", but I only have one page to do this! Honestly, I couldn't wait to get to college. I took slightly more than 4 years to graduate with a B.A. in business. During this time I developed my true love for stories, and the first true book idea came to me...and they never stopped! I wrote all of them down until "one day" I could dedicate the time to finish. After college, I did the responsible thing and got a good job with a good company that based me in Redondo Beach, CA. I worked and worked and worked, always typing up my new story summaries. I moved to Texas with the company and worked some more. Changed jobs after a few years because I felt like something was missing. Changed them again and still felt like I was doing something wrong. Then a burning in my chest like I never felt before ignited. I thought it was a heart attack, but the doctor told me it wasn't. It was really the inner urge to tell my stories. So, I did the only logical thing and quit a well-paying job to write! Over a period of 5 months I finished my first draft. Then I got engaged and had to get a job ... again. I got a job I liked and wrote very little on the side. Then my gorgeous wife got pregnant and everything changed for me. After my daughter was born, I knew I had to set an example for her: you must Work For Your Dreams. Over the past year I have elevated the book, with the help of my wonderful editor, several professor friends, a writer's workshop, and some fantasy savants, from novice level to something I'm proud of. Life is good as I write a little every day. Look for my short stories and my epic fantasy in the fall of this year!

A self confessed word-a-holic and a traveller, when not writing books, I am sure to be packing the bags and donning the boots to zip around the world. A maverick writer, and a chocolate addict with a penchant for the unusual, I have collected dozens of interesting certificates that range from a wine-master's assistant at Australia, an international reindeer driving licence from Lapland, to one from "The School of Hard Knocks, Royal Selangor, Malaysia, a testimony to my love for travelling.
I am an avid reader, writer, blogger, book reviewer, and marketer. I am the founder of The Book Club, an online book publicity group. My first literary work was published in my school magazine. I then went to complete my MBA and after my marriage to my childhood friend, my travel saga started. From The Netherlands to the British Isles I lived my life like an adventure. After a short stint in Malaysia, I finally settled down in the desert state of USA, Arizona. Living with my DH and two human kids and one doggie kid, and I finally started living the life I had always dreamed about – that of a writer.
I'm writing since I was in 8th grade and I think that's where it all started. I had (I mean, I still have) a madness to change the world. There are things which we need to change and most of the time I write about those things only. I try to provide some solutions in the end of my articles and I hope that each of my articles will serve a message to humanity, not only to every individual. Besides writing I also love reading novels and listening songs and truth to be told, I can’t imagine my life without Eminem’s songs. LOL. OMG! I just forgot to tell you that I’m an introvert and that helps me a lot in writing especially when I’m writing some poems. And yes! I don’t speak much, but my words do.
Hey everyone!!! Myself Priya Gote. I believe, what we do or what we wear doesn't define our personality but the words we convey through our speech or writings surely do. When I entered the medical school, I thought that my desire to pass on my brainwork to the audience spreaded across the different places would be unaccomplised. But here I am to quench my thirst and to do better day by day than I can do.
