About the Author

ROY RATNAVEL was born in 1969 in the capital city of Colombo, Sri Lanka. At the age of seventeen, he became a political prisoner, and spent grueling months in brutal and oppressive conditions. After his miraculous release from prison, he arrived in Canada all alone at the age of eighteen. Ratnavel is now an executive at Canada’s largest independent asset management company. He is an accidental Sri Lankan by birth, an unapologetic Tamil by heritage, and a proud Canadian by choice. Prisoner #1056 is his first book. Ratnavel currently resides in Toronto with his wife and son.
