About the Author;
Bhakti took to writing in 2010 when she created the popular 'Amma Tell Me' Series of picture books about Indian festivals and mythology. After a long stint as a banker, she now juggles her time between writing, her passion for yoga and long-distance running, and her family. She lives in Hong Kong with her husband, their two children and two dogs. She holds a master of fine arts degree in creative writing from the University of Hong Kong and freelances as a journalist. Her articles have been published in the South China Morning Post. When not writing or running after her young boys, Bhakti is happiest curled up with a book in one hand and a hot cup of chai in the other.
