Non-nerdy Bio:

Hello! Welcome to my website.

My name is Sandhya Menon, and I write books for teens. I was born and raised in India on a steady diet of Bollywood movies and street food. I pretty much blame this upbringing for my obsession with happily-ever-afters, bad dance moves, and pani puri.

I currently live in Colorado, where I’m on a mission to (gently) coerce my husband, son, and daughter to watch all 3,220 Bollywood movies I claim as my favorite.

My YA novel WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI will be out on May 30, 2017 from Simon Pulse (Simon & Schuster). Preorder on Amazon or add it on Goodreads if you like!
