About Rupal


Hey! I'm Rupal Mohta. I was born in India to parents who always managed to lay their hands on some reading matter! I grew up in southern India, around coconut trees. Life was simple and my childhood was so happy. I studied, lots of it but little would  have I imagined to grow up to be an author.  And today here I'm an author, blogger and content writer, company secretary, artist and mom. I make my home in India with my husband, and our two inquisitive kids. Incidentally, they also love to lay their hands on reading matter just like their grandparents!


I love my undisciplined terrace garden. I can cook, dance, sing, and sketch. I try to devotedly write a few pages each week because bringing a story to life fascinates me. I'm terrible with new age technical gadgets and regular exercising! But hey I'm trying!

When I'm not writing you can catch me secretly eating a chocolate bar and reading a favorite book or even dusting a corner in my home.


Go on, pick up my books and read my written words in a cozy nook, all in the while sipping an inspiring mug of chocolate milkshake fuel and secretly eating a chocolate bar!
