It’s been said that those who don’t know their history are destined to repeat it, but author Raven Kamali likes to take a different approach: as a student of ancient history, she mines the past for inspirations to use in her tales, and her desire to transport readers to different times and places even forced her to rethink her education while studying at the university.
“I wanted to be an ancient historian,” she says about her original career choice. “I went to university to study ancient history and the classical Latin and Greek languages. It was not until the start of my PhD that I changed my mind and instead chose writing as a career. And the reason was that I wanted to bring to life major historical events that took place in Judea and Rome between 7BC-AD9 …”
Writing is a personal passion for her, and she’s not committed to a single format. Since embarking on her career as a self-published author, she’s penned historical essays, poetry, short stories, and more; and she admits to varying her particular style based on the needs of the individual work.
“My favourite moment is when I begin to write a book,” she adds. “The proudest moment is when I see the print copy in my hand.”
Indeed, Kamali's latest -- I Am Chaos -- is available at Amazon.com, along with other works.
