AboutAuran Abraham, Author at The Creative Issue

“The thing about writers” I said, with an ounce of chagrin to my tone, “is that they’re very good at telling you who they are through their writing, not so much directly”. I am a writer at heart, anything literary speaks volumes to my soul, and in turn, I convert that heart-word music, into white noise. In layman’s no uncertain terms, I have more than six years of academically backed writing experience and have a huge interest in the works of Markus Zusak, J.R.R Tolkein, Rabbie Burns and my favourite modern author Terry Pratchett (may he rest in peace). I enjoy the nerdier things in life, comics, movies, and music. I am a self-proclaimed cinephile, and enjoy most movies to some extent, even the truly awful ones, and have taken to learning to play the banjo when time permits. But where my heart truly lies is in my love of all things theatre, in peace and quiet, and good tilled earth.
