Sanjoy Goswami is a hard working young entrepreneur who is also ready to work at the end of

the eight-hour day, when everyone else leaves for home and will often continue to work into the

evening, developing new business ideas. He enjoys creating business strategies and thrives on

the process of achieving their goals. Once a goal is achieved, he quickly replace it with a greater

goal and strive to exert whatever influence can over future events and have a compelling need to

do his own thing in his own way. He is self-confident and is always in control of what he is

doing and working alone. He is at his best in the face of adversity, because of his self-

confidence. He has a never-ending sense of urgency to develop their ideas. Inactivity makes him

impatient, tense, and uneasy.

He has completed his Schooling from South Point High School and Graduated from University

of Calcutta in Commerce. Later on he was certified in Oracle 9i.

Sanjoy says what he means and assume that everyone else does too and tend to be too trusting in

his business dealings with other people. He is a natural leader and is usually the first to identify a

problem to be overcome. He occupied various senior positions in his career spanning over 14

years in Multinationals like Lexis Nexis, Oxford University Press etc. He has co-launched

Anastasia Art Gallery with Moitrayee Basu and is also the founder Secretary of the NGO named

Aeonflux. He is also involved in creation and composition of various online projects.



A. Lawrence Haskins was born in Tacoma, Washington on October 14, 1970. His father and

mother, examples of strong and consistent work ethic, sacrificed continually to take care of their

nine children; an undertaking they accomplished with unparalleled success.

It was from this example that Haskins developed the character of perseverance and endurance

that helped him walk successfully through the darkest days of his life.

For as log as he can recall, the creative space has always provided an outlet and escape for

Haskins. He wrote his first short story when he was nine years of age and in one fashion or

another, has been expressing himself with the written word ever since.

Today, Haskins is grateful for every experience he has had during his life’s journey as he realizes

that were it not for these precise combination of events, he would not possess the drive to

approach the literary tapestry with the passion, joy and appreciation he now does.

He also serves as the President & CEO of a web and graphic design firm he founded with his

wife in 2006. However, at his core, A. Lawrence Haskins is a loving son, proud father,

supportive brother and a forever grateful and devoted husband. He is presently at work on his

next novel.
