I’m Mihir Kamat, an avid blogger and first-time author of “At First Sight.” My work dabbles in fiction, poetry, and songwriting. Originally from Mumbai, India, I currently live in the Buckeye state: Ohio, USA.
My first tryst with writing began in 2005 when I discovered a friend’s weblog (now blog), and I instantly fell in love with the concept. I could write my innermost thoughts and experience the joy of being read by complete strangers on the internet. Since then I’ve added poetry and songwriting to my arsenal, and I don’t shy away from the occasional Haiku.
Work on my first book, At First Sight, began in late 2013 as a collection of short stories I’d written over the years. These stories are close to my heart, and they deserved to be compiled together for the world to read. I didn’t have much support then, and I decided to self-publish the book under my own banner, Mihir Kamat Books. The book did reasonably well and sold over a hundred copies in the first two months of going on sale and went ahead to generate multiple 5-star reviews on GoodReads.
I’m currently working on a couple of book projects and expect to have one of them completed and released in mid-2018.
I love reading mystery and thriller novels and cooking on weekends. I own and have read over a hundred books and can get hooked on to a good book instantly.
