TribeLA Magazine: What would you like to share with our audience and how do you hope to affect us?

In 2009 Rohitash and his longtime writing partner, Peter Nelson, published their first children’s book, “Herbert’s Wormhole” through Harper Collins. J.K. Rowling gave it a thumbs up and it soon led to a trilogy. The books are now sold all over the U.S., Brazil and Korea. Their second book series, “Creature Keepers” is a 4-book series and book 4 was released last October, 2017.
In 2012 Rohit and Peter created an animated pilot for Fox called “Rancho Cucamonga” that was based on Rohitash’s life growing up as the only Indian family living in Rancho Cucamonga. The pilot was produced by Lorne Michaels but as of yet has not been picked up.
