Writer and journalist Roopa Pai has lived, worked, and traveled in three continents, writing for some of India' best known publications on various topics, including business, lifestyle, travel and food, and profiling well-known public figures from the fields of business, sport, theatre and film. Her published works include non-fiction for adults a biography, Chanakya The Master Statesman, and a city guide, Ticket Bengaluru and a series of career guides for students, but her first and greatest love remains writing for children. Aptly, she started her journalistic career with the legendary children's magazine, Target. Roopa got her undergraduate degree in computer engineering, which is probably why science and problem-solving, in some form or fashion, are recurring motifs in her children's writing. She has won a Children's Book Trust Award for Science Writing, and her books for younger children include the best-selling 4-part science series, Sister Sister, which has been translated into eleven Indian languages. She has also written two girl-power books for UNICEF's Children for Change series.
