Writing has always been a hobby for ඕපනයිකෝ. However, it was not always something they thought they could make a living with. After winning a short story competition in 2000, they realized they had something valuable to share with the world and turned to writing full time.
Since turning their passion into a profession, ඕපනයිකෝ has written prolifically and is constantly exploring new themes, genres and ideas. It’s incredibly hard work, but they're never happier than when they sit down at their desk putting the opening words to a new book or story on paper.
