My compelling new novel, Dr. Sharma's Fantabulous Fantasies, will take you on an exhilarating and expansive journey through a kaleidoscope of genres. Get the book via the links below and strap yourself in for a wild ride that takes in identity, racism, religion, sex, fetishes, suicide and more in a story that is laced with black comedy and spans different countries and realities.
After an ill-fated experiment, Dr. Dev Sharma finds himself in a... precarious situation. Reliving the moments leading to his current condition, Dr. Sharma's playful imagination seeps into his memories, prompting surreal and blackly comic stories that reflect his state of mind. All the while, he is prompted by a mysterious and playful visitor who witnesses his struggle. As Dr. Sharma’s mind unravels, fact and fiction interweave, unravelling a mystery and revealing a dark family secret.
The novel takes us from Dev's childhood memories, through the devastation wrought on his family by an unimaginable tragedy taking him from England to Mauritius. There the gulf between cultures envelops young Dev as his mother's newfound religious obsession prompts him to seek comfort in fantasy.
Upon returning to England, his desire to fit in amongst schoolmates causes him to analyse the prejudice and everyday racism he experiences at school. Years later, as a practising doctor, Dr. Sharma discovers his mother’s dark and long-hidden family secret in a shattering episode that leads him to sex workers, a trafficker, and a sex club to understand the past.

This genre-hopping novel tells a story that spans continents, taking us on a journey packed with emotion. One that explores the nature of identity, questions how we perceive differences, considers how we think and ponders life’s fragility, as well as its instances of duality that we rarely consider.
In writing the novel I have drawn upon some of my own experiences to write an ambitious and exciting debut. With a ribbon of dark humour, as well as emotional resonance, this novel is a life-affirming message that hope can transcend darkness and that life, despite its fragility, is a compulsion we all live.
