About the author

“All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know.”
—Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast
When Santhosh encountered the above quote that came from a reputable American author, it strengthened his intentions to write. Though he utilized that as a foundation for his writings, he wasn’t confident that a truth could be easily written. Because a truth for him is such an entity that can be easily understood, but the realization seemed hard. That posed a challenge for him as he began to write. Several questions followed. Nevertheless, he continued and wanted to see where he would head. Fortunately, that questioning fueled his writing engine, instead of burning his aspirations. This resulted in his debut book—Walks Through Life: Stories.
The inspiration behind his writing comes from his interaction with Hindu mythology. He believes that mythology does not just offer historical events but, rather, a set of valuable lessons that are often interwoven within the details. He chose story writing as a medium to bring out those learnings. He intends to continue his writing in this regard.
Currently Santhosh lives in Greer, SC, USA, along with his wife and two sons.
