DR. MEL'S MESSAGE - From my novels to my other projects, no telling what you will read. This is the only place you will get to read about how I developed a screenplay into a novel and what is the driving force. I will talk about many things from films to books to acting to producing. It really will depend on where my mind takes me. I hope you will join me on this journey.
Growing up in a village sheltered by the Himalayan mountain range, Om learned the most mysterious secrets the forest could offer. Now, under the wing of the great guru Rishi Rig Muni, he prepares to learn even more about warfare. But as Om embarks on his quest to become a divinely-blessed warrior, Rishi will reveal a dangerous world of intrigue. Beyond his village, demons roam the hills, and the lurking creatures are beginning to mass against Om's people. After an age of peace, three conquering kings have returned, more powerful than ever, ready to enact their vendetta against the Himalayan kingdoms. It will take all his wits and every friend he can find to enlist an army. But can Rishi, Om, and his new companions defend the Himalayan kingdoms against the rising army of demons? The mission is beyond belief—the consequences of failure, unspeakable. The Himalayan Kingdoms features a folklore-inspired adventure suitable for all ages, featuring adventures, romance, and treasures beyond imagining!
Vishal's fondness for concocting stories was recognized sometime during his pre-school. This fondness for mischief & imaginative rationale behind his actions, rewarded him with a steady diet of detention as he grew up.
He has always dreamt of writing a story that the readers found worthy of falling in love with. Finally, after years of moving-to-trash a bunch of unfinished manuscripts, he has launched his debut novel "The Himalayan Kingdoms".
Vishal lives in a quiet city in Oregon and spends most of his weekends at the beach. Scribbling plots for his next novel, a pen and his notebook in his hands. If not the beach, you may find him either hiking, camping or shopping.
