Vick Wadhwa grew up in a small town in eastern India in a home with no TV, but with access to good books from the local school run by Jesuit missionaries. An early interest in reading helped him do well in school and undergraduate college. Then he traveled to the United States to pursue a Ph.D. in pharmaceutical sciences, and eventually became a naturalized citizen. After earning a doctorate from Ohio State University, he worked as a scientist for 17 years with major pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, contributing to the development of several prescription products. In mid‐2012, he decided to change course to pursue new dreams and transition to a new career of writing and entrepreneurship, with an overall focus on health and wellness. Along with writing projects, he is currently in the process of starting up a small business, in order to launch a unique liquid mineral supplement named “EMdrops” that he invented.
Thanks to his daughter, he has also developed a deep personal interest in early learning and education. “A New Take on ABCs – S is for Smiling Sunrise: An Alphabet Book of Goodness, Beauty, and Wonder” is intended to be the first of several books for early readers.
