About the author

mabraham-headManoj S. Abraham spent the first 20 years of his professional life as a ‘techie’ – managing products and marketing initiatives for software companies. That started to change in 2011 when his son, Sam, was born. From that point on, he began embracing what was once a hobby – writing – as a career. Manoj credits his interest in writing to his father, who encouraged him to take on writing and editing projects from a young age. Manoj is inspired by the beautiful moments in life that come without warning or reason. He currently lives in New Jersey with his wife, Kristen, his children, Sam and Maya, and their dog, Sherpa.
