Tiwary, the author of the multi-award winning graphic novel, The Fifth Beatle: The Brian Epstein Story. You have heard George gush about this book, which was illustrated by Andrew Robinson and Kyle Baker. Vivek was kind enough to share the behind-the-scenes process of writing the story of his "historical mentor." Plus, he talks about his award winning past as a producer on Broadway, his current project writing the screenplay for the film adaptation of The Fifth Beatle, and what the future holds for his multi-platform arts and entertainment company, Tiwary Entertainment Group.
