A.B. Majmudar was minding her own business: spending time with her family, dancing Bharatanatyam, reading books, and perfecting her methi paratha recipe…when the gods of ancient India benevolently, but persistently, demanded her attention. Before she knew it, she had written her first novel.
A graduate of UC Berkeley in English, she taught the subject to high school students, who quickly learned that she would drop everything for a story-knowledge which they tried to use to their advantage on exam days.
Despite (reluctantly) growing up, Majmudar still loves children’s and young adult books, which she loves to read with her three children. She is most at home in ancient Indian stories, and she looks forward to more visits from the gods, leading to more novels.
