Deepak Yeshwanth Saibaba is a young author from the Indian IT world. He currently lives in Birmingham, UK pursuing a Masters in I.T.
Artistically inclined from a very young age, he says he had no idea that he had a flair for writing for a very long time.
"I used to try and write to compete with my sister, who used to write short witty literary pieces very well. But each time I tried to write, I never got beyond one sentence."
So how did it all start for this young IT professional? He laughed when we asked him.
"I was writing a fake Harry Potter first page. It was a time when the 5th Harry Potter book was about to be released and everyone read anything that was leaked out on the internet hoping it would be the real one. I could not believe that most of my friends who read my fake Harry Potter page thought it was the real deal."
Deepak feels that the most important challenge that he faced was to strike a balance between work life and the creative side. Currently he works on his fourth book - a compilation of short stories.
His previous works are
a. Winged Dreams (Fiction)
b. The Last Pharaoh of the Nile (Historical Fiction)
c. Shades of Dreams (Poetry Anthology)
