Rohini is from the small Caribbean island of Trinidad, where she still lives. She has a Bachelor’s degree in computing from the University of Greenwich and currently works for the government of Trinidad and Tobago. Rohini has been employed in the Information Technology field for over ten years in the areas of solutions development and implementation, database administration and web development. She also worked within the Caribbean as a Consultant for the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) in the areas of database and application support, including data analysis, and process-re-engineering.
Rohini always had a love for science fiction as a child, and she dabbled in writing short fiction during high school. She later wrote a screenplay entitled “The Space Rockettes,” which still sits on a bookshelf. Her favourite authors and books include Jules Verne, Ray Bradbury, H.G. Wells, all variations of Star Trek, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter.
Rohini’s inspiration for The Time Manipulator’s Son came from some of the young students at a high school where her sister was a teacher. Rohini frequently attended events at the school, and after observing some of the younger children, the idea popped into her head: what if kids of different species came together for a common cause in an alternate world?
