Whip of the Wild God catapults you on a wild ride into 1839 BCE India....Ishvari, an angry and spirited girl plucked out of rural poverty to be meticulously groomed by tantric monks, is elected to serve as spiritual consort to Takshak, powerful monarch of Melukhha. Her tumultuous journey--from terrified peasant to glamorous High Tantrika of Melukhha—hurls her into the abyss of addiction. As she sinks into depravity, Ishvari violates the ancient Melukhhan code of honor, infuriating Rudra-Shiva, the Wild God, and calling forth Takshak’s sadistic revenge. And yet, as Ishvari flees for her life, now a notorious fugitive with a gold price on her head, the fire wisdom teachings she has grasped intellectually as a girl finally blaze into roaring life....here is a magnificent metaphysical saga you will find impossible to put down!

About the author

I was born in India and moved to New York in my twenties. It was during my tumultuous years in Manhattan that I first became fascinated by eastern philosophy's power to transform the genuine seeker.

So, during the freezing winter of 1993, I began to write WHIP OF THE WILD GOD, a novel of tantra set in an ancient civilization reminiscent of India's famous Indus Valley Civilization. I completed this novel--believe it or not!--twenty years later, in the shadow of Arunachala, the ancient hill considered by millions to be the God Shiva incarnate.

Three more novels are currently simmering in my consciousness--COPPER MOON OVER PATALIPUTRA, set in the time of the magnificent Mauryan Empire (300 BCE, India); KRISHNA'S COUNSEL, a contemporary novel (the genre: metaphysical crime fiction!), set both in India and New York, and a third, untitled, in which I intend to present the spiritual "view" necessary for seeking moksha, or enlightenment--a unique and perhaps controversial view I have garnered from my travels and study all across the globe--from south India to Manhattan, to the foothills of the Himalayas, Europe, and finally back to south India.

I now live in the deep south of India, hanging out with my divine canines, Kali and Aghori, delighting in my growing garden, and continuing to mine my own creative and spiritual potential.
