Shruthi Rao grew up in the Bangalore of the eighties and nineties. She got a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from RVCE, Bangalore.
After that, she got a master's degree in energy engineering from NIT, Trichy, where she tried to design an efficient wind pump. (Long story short, it crashed.) She worked in the IT industry in Mumbai and Bangalore for a while, until her daughter dragged out the writer inside her. Shruthi now lives in California with her family. She misses India, but comforts herself with the beauty of the Californian redwoods and the Pacific Coast. She loves books, trees, benches, desserts, science, trivia and long walks.
