First Person: The thrill of secrets to be discovered. The fascination of mysteries to be solved. The spine-chilling suspense while watching the hero embark on a dangerous adventure. The joy of watching the evil villain lose. That empty feeling when the book is over. That’s what a children’s book should be about.–
Christopher C Doyle
Christopher C. Doyle is a bestselling author who transports the reader into a fascinating world where ancient secrets buried in legends blend with science and history to create a gripping story.
His first three novels – The Mahabharata Secret (released in 2013), The Mahabharata Quest: The Alexander Secret (released in 2014) and The Mahabharata Quest: The Secret of the Druids (released in 2016) – explore the science behind the enduring legends of the Mahabharata, in an explosive blend of science, mythology, history and action and are all bestsellers.
In April 2018, Christopher released Son of Bhrigu, the first book in The Pataala Prophecy series: a new fantasy thriller series set in present-day India. The new series is a unique blend of fantasy and Indian mythology, with action, adventure and suspense, and set in our modern world. The new book was an instant bestseller and has got rave reviews on Amazon.
Brought up as a boy on a steady diet of books ranging from classical literature to science fiction and fantasy to poetry and plays, Christopher has dreamed of becoming a writer from an early age. The science fiction of Jules Verne, H G Wells, Isaac Asimov and Robert Heinlein and the fantasies scripted by Tolkien, Robert Jordan and Terry Brooks inspired him to write from his schooldays, with the desire of seeing his name alongside his literary idols in bookshops someday.
Before he finally embarked on the journey of achieving his childhood dreams, Christopher pursued a career in the corporate world, graduating from St. Stephens College, Delhi with a degree in Economics and studying business management at IIM Calcutta. Over the course of his corporate career, he has worked with leading multinational organizations like Coats Viyella, Hilton Hotels, IBM and The Economist Group. He now helps companies to grow profitably and sustainably, and is one of India’s leading CEO coaches.
Over the course of his corporate career, Christopher has written articles on management and business for Indian and international publications and is also a regular invited speaker for international conventions and conferences.
Christopher lives in New Delhi with his wife and daughter and enjoys writing, reading, swimming and tennis as well as travelling and meeting people. He is also a musician and lives his passion for music through his band called Mid Life Crisis which plays classic rock.
