When your passion overtakes your work, it’s time to make your passion your work.
Subash Jayaraman loved Cricket as long as he can remember. He’s never not had Cricket in his life. Growing up in India, Cricket was always a part of his family life. He came to the US in 1998, and he found that he could not follow Cricket as much as he could when he was in India.
Subash started his writing endeavors with a personal blog. A traumatic situation in his youth provided some writing inspiration. Once he wrote about his personal story of abuse, he found that he could almost write about anything.
