I’m an author, data scientist and programmer from Colombo, Sri Lanka. You can find my writing on Goodreads, Icaruswept, Readme, Medium and quite a few other places.


If you’d like to read some of my work, try The Slow Sad Suicide of Rohan Wijeratne (no relation). It’s about a man who signs up to be shot into a Kerr singularity – that’s a black hole whose rotation flattens it out into a ring.

It’s got some rave reviews on Goodreads, hit the #1 spots on Amazon’s scifi and lit-fic bestseller lists, and you can now download it from Amazon for free.

Progress update:

  1. Numbercaste, which is now in the whole editing / publishing grinder, is a novel in the vein of 1984 and Black Mirror. It chronicles a Silicon Valley company as it tries to get the whole world hooked on a utopian vision – an ideal state where everyone’s worth to society is analyzed, quantified, and crunched down to a single number.
  2. Blue Mountain, set in a post-apocalyptic Colombo, is being written over the weekends. It’s turning into a very Lord of the Flies-esque story about a deaf-mute girl exploring what the societies that lie beyond a huge mountain of trash.
