Sameer Ketkar received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Screenwriting from the University of Southern California, and has written one feature film, the thriller "Backwaters." He has written dozens of unproduced screenplays and TV pilots, and has written and directed numerous short films and commercials.
In 2011, Mr. Ketkar began publishing novels. His first book, "Entanglement," was about two star-crossed lovers who couldn't seem to disentangle themselves from one another. His second novel, "BODIES: Book #1: Staged Fright," was released in 2013 and was a thriller dramedy with a menage-a-twist. His third novel, "Victory Blvd.," released in 2014, was an action-thriller with a hefty dose of comedy. His fourth novel, also released in 2014, was entitled "God's Glass" and was a hard-hitting biographical drama. His fifth novel, "Simple Tricks and Nonsense," was released in 2016 and was a scathing satirical takedown of organized religion. He released a children's story in early 2017, called "A World in a Dew Drop."
He is currently working on a novel about the historical king Charlemagne, as well as a sequel to "BODIES: Book #1: Staged Fright." Mr. Ketkar likes to play guitar and draw pictures in his free time.
