Rohit Sawant’s fiction has been published in various anthologies like On Fire, Down with the Fallen: A Post-Apocalyptic Horror Anthology, Sherlock Holmes: Adventures in the Realms of H.G. Wells, After the Happily Ever After, Kill Those Damn Cats – a Lovecraftian Anthology, and in Flash Fiction Magazine.
Growing up, he consumed a diet of comic books, films but read novels sparingly, and only fell in love with books in his late teens when he picked up Four past Midnight by Stephen King and has been hooked on reading since.
Despite being a late-blooming bookworm, he was always drawn to storytelling. His first attempt at fiction was a whodunit scribbled in a school notebook after watching Alfred Hitchcock Presents with his cousins when he was eight. He showed it to his teacher. He remembers little except her initial interest turning to mild alarm as she read it. That was a good day.
He has a bachelor’s degree in animation and computer graphics and has worked as a CG artist on animated features at Prana Studios, Inc.
He lives in Mumbai, India and presently works as a freelance artist and writer.
He enjoys sketching, films, and his favorite Batman is Kevin Conroy.
