Vijay Lakshman was born in Ottawa, Canada. He spent his early years in Bangkok, Thailand. When he was nine, his father took him to a martial arts exhibition and his life changed forever.
He dedicated the next thirty years to mastering the martial arts, his quest taking him across the U.S., Europe, and to China. In 1991 he earned his master's rank in a hard style of Chinese fighting, then in grappling and submission, and finally in kendo, a Japanese style of sword fighting. After that, he accumulated over 1,200 combat engagements against the best the world had to offer. His true passion however, is writing, and Mythborn his first epic fantasy novel.
He spends his free time entertaining his endless curiosity. This includes researching useless facts on Google, testing ideas on combustion and antigravity (only on interesting things), and searching for evidence of pre-diluvian civilizations.
His eclectic experience includes graduation from the Harvard Business School's General Manager Program, creator of over 85 video game titles, thirty years of training in the martial arts, sixteen years of close combat grappling, fifteen years of kendo, six years of long-distance cycling, and taking various things in the house apart.
Putting everything back together is the job of his beautiful wife, two amazing sons, and a daughter on the way to coordinate everyone on damage control.
