Anand S

Portrait of Anand S
Anand S is a childrenís author who specialises in the creation of picture books. His published works include Homer the Hungry Cat and Pigs Canít Fly.

Anand S was born in India in 1985 and moved to England aged 10. He studied Medicine at the University of Cambridge. Whilst training to be a surgeon he discovered a passion for writing, so he exchanged the scalpel for the pen.

"For me, making the learning experience enjoyable is important. I believe that children are more likely to learn if they are having fun. This is why I try to create stories that are funny, humorous and imaginative."

"The writersís group has been integral to my success. Itís one of the places that I learnt about the craft of writing. This has helped me to become a more accomplished author."

Homer the Hungry Cat is a web based book. It is about an extremely hungry cat and the mischief he gets up. You can read the story for free here.

Pigs Canít Fly is a funny bedtime story about a little pig named Zig. Zig wants to fly more than anything. But Zig is repeatedly told, "Pigs can walk, pigs can run but pigs canít fly". The question you are probably asking yourself is, "Will Zig prove the doubters wrong?" Pigs Canít Fly is available for purchase from the Amazon Bookstore.
