ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Residing in Chennai, known as ‘The Detroit of India,’ Murtaza Akbar is a devoted family man with an impressive educational background. He completed his Civil Engineering B.E. from Crescent Engineering College and has been a Project Manager in a prestigious firm in Dubai for the past 18 years.
However, the 2020 lockdown brought Murtaza back to his hometown, which prompted him to follow his childhood passion for writing. Although he had received recognition and awards for his writing skills during school, he had neglected his talent until now.
Murtaza believes that humility and courtesy are what make us human. He has a down-to-earth intellectual approach towards problem-solving, which has earned him numerous accolades in his civil engineering field. He plans to bring the same magic from his creative side through his debut novel, Wuhan Awakening.
Over the past eighteen months, he has collaborated with a massive team of editors and beta readers to edit and improve his novel. His primary objective is to engage and captivate his readers; he strives to accomplish that with every sentence he writes.
He believes, “”We are doomed to stay in one reality, but a creative writer could take you on a mystifying voyage in different worlds altogether.””
