Can a mystical American detective solve the mysteries of India? Bollywood Storm is a complex and intricate, dark multicultural comedy that is classified as a Bollywood Murder Mystery. Along the way, it’s also a meditation on Eastern and Western cultures, self, identity, ego, and intimacy; and it’s got the five song and dance numbers in it, too. The story takes place over two Books, spanning two continents. Book I: New York Elanna is hired by the Bollywood starlet, Simryn Gill, to reopen the case of Rajesh Sharma, a Bollywood director who died supposedly from a heart attack two years previous. Although it appears a simple heart attack, there is no drama, no gossip, no controversy in the Bollywood media. Somewhere, in that odd conspicuous silence, Elanna smells a big rat.



N.K. Johel is a third generation Sikh-Canadian as her grandfather, who was born in the 1860's or so, emigrated to North America during the first decade of the twentieth century. Yet due to many complex historical happenings, she did not begin to learn English until she started primary school. She gravitated to art, music, writing and theatre during her school years in Lake Cowichan. As a young adult, she moved to Nanaimo to study theatre at Vancouver Island Univerity, and then to Vancouver to study painting and fine arts at Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design. Her interest in literature developed informally. She credits Toni Morrison's Jazz and Michael Ondaatje's Running In The Family as the works that rekindled her interest in writing.
