Author to the stars*

AN ORIGINAL: Rohini Singh, author of The Time Manipulator’s Son, is the first female Sci-fi writer from Trinidad and Tobago.


Author Rohini Singh is stirring things up in the science fiction world. Singh, author of the sci-fi novel, The Time Manipulator's Son, is the first female sci-fi novelist from Trinidad and Tobago.
