Vyom Mahamunkar was born and raised in Ahmedabad. As the son of an army officer, he had the opportunity to travel to several places, which sparked an interest in history and culture during his formative years. Inquisitive by nature, he was fascinated by the otherworldly charm of the science-fiction and fantasy genres. Creating fictional worlds is one of his favourite hobbies. The themes he explores in his writing are choices, change, and second chances.
Vyom is a former design student who has found his passion in storytelling. He is currently pursuing a degree in film editing at Whistling Woods International. When not writing, he enjoys watching films, learning new things, and playing copious amounts of video games. He lives in Mumbai with his Labrador, Hazel.
The Eternal’s Gambit is Vyom's debut novel.
