Raj Napal was born in Port-Louis, Mauritius. He emigrated to Britain with his parents and siblings when he was eight years old. He was brought up in Cardiff in South Wales. Poetry was instilled in him while he lived in Wales.
He obtained a law degree from Leeds University in Yorkshire and was a criminal defense barrister in London in the 80s and 90s. In 1995, he came to Ontario, Canada with his then spouse where he continued to practice law.
In 2010, he commenced writing, but at that time, it was mostly poetry. In the last two years, his imagination took him into the strange world of the supernatural, horror and terror. He finds short stories particularly fascinating and “Dance with Terror’ is part of a collection of stories in that intriguing genre. (Kindle and amazon.com) Most of them were written in the last two years.
He continues to write poetry. He has self-published two books of poems, ‘Salt and Sugar’ and ‘Food and Fruit’ and hopes to compile a book of spiritual poems soon. He has also ventured into the field of crime-thriller serializations and supernatural adventures. Some are nearly finished and others are ongoing projects.
He has two children, Joshua, and Helena. They share and support his passion for reading and writing.
He hopes the readers on poetry soup will find his poems stimulating, amusing and philosophically/spiritually provoking. Feedback from the readers would be greatly appreciated.
