About the Author

Alan Premesh Bassett is a historian, therapist, novelist, and world traveler. He was born in Key West, Florida, and completed his Bachelors and Masters degrees in European history at Florida State University. He taught world history at Nova University and Russian history at Chapman University until he resumed his postgraduate studies in psychotherapy at Antioch University in Seattle. While traveling in India in 1981, he had a life changing experience when he met the enlightened mystic Osho. He returned to India in 1987 and spent the next ten years working and meditating in the Osho International Commune. During that time, he was trained in the esoteric sciences, past life therapy, and a host of other therapies offered by the Osho International University. For the past two decades, Alan has conducted transpersonal therapy and meditation groups throughout Europe, in India, the United States, and Brazil. After extensive travels through India and Southeast Asia, he moved to the island of Phuket, Thailand in 2003 to focus his work on writing novels and short stories. In December, 2004, the tsunami that took 30,000 lives in southern Thailand struck the beaches less than a mile from his home. “If I had gone to the beach that morning as I often did, I would not be here to tell about it. There was nothing left of the beach. The tsunami destroyed everything in its path, reducing homes, shops, and restaurants to concrete rubble and wooden matchsticks. The tragic loss of so many human lives was heartbreaking.” On a return visit to the United States the following year, his plane arrived just in time for Hurricane Katrina, converting the airport into an overnight emergency shelter. These two cataclysmic disasters occurred during the same time that he was writing his series of novels about the 'great debacle' of the twenty-first century. “When you are writing apocalyptic novels, you have to be careful about what experiences you attract,” he says. He presently lives in the mountains of the Sierra Norte in Spain where he spends much of his time and energy writing visionary fiction novels and short stories. He has just completed the third volume of The Ashoka Chronicles trilogy, and is presently working on a new novel entitled 'The Seduction of Saint Ursula' which he expects to finish by the end of 2012. A collection of short stories will soon follow. When he is not busy writing, Alan enjoys traveling through Europe and Asia with his lovely partner Meerananda.
