Biography 


The son of Indian immigrants, Ashim Shanker was born and raised in Allentown, Pennsylvania. After graduating university, he worked in the wireless communications industry briefly before relocating to Tokyo where he resided for 11 years, employed in teaching positions and as a content developer for textbooks and e-learning software. Working 3-4 different jobs at any given time, he wrote in his few spare moments, eventually publishing his first novel, "Don't Forget to Breathe," in 2008. In spite of the limited readership following the book's initial release, Shanker decided to continue the narrative as a series entitled "Migrations," publishing a second installment, "Only the Deplorable," in 2013. By this point, and due in part to the popularity and accessibility of the eBook versions, the first book had already achieved readership in more than 70 countries. In May 2014, Shanker released his first book of poems and short stories, "Sinew of the Social Species." His experiences teaching in international and public school environments have informed his advocacy for systemic reform in global educational policy and delivery. Hoping in the future to devise educational environments which offer greater outlets for exploratory learning and intercultural understanding, he is currently pursuing graduate study in International Education Policy at Harvard University. He is also currently working on the third installment of the "Migrations" series. In his own words: "Writing has always been both the catalyst and the fuel for my external endeavors. My only hope is that it will remain so."
