By Monica Khanna

Dr. Monica Khanna completed her high school from International School Bangkok. After moving to India, she completed her B.A, M.A, M.Phil and Ph.D. in English Literature. Her passion for books, love for kids, and the desire to revive and rekindle an interest in the dying art of reading amongst children have been instrumental in her decision to take up writing fiction. She has published two books. Her first book entitled ‘Deconstructing Motherhood’ (2010) deals with the ideology of motherhood in Indian culture. Her second book, ‘Peek a Boo Manya’ (2016) is a collection of short stories for children which revolves around the sweet and sour life of an eight year old girl Manya. It attempts to create a familiar world that Indian children can identify with and relate to. Wickety Whack is her third book.
