About the Author

Bhakti Mathur took to writing in 2010 when she created the popular Amma Tell Me series of children s picture books about Indian festivals and mythology. She wrote and self-published her first book, Amma Tell Me About Holi! in 2011 and the series has now grown to eleven books. Bhakti is currently working on a new series titled Amma Take Me in collaboration with Puffin Books, Penguin Random House India. The new series introduces children to major Indian faiths through their important places of worship and the first two books on the Golden Temple in Amritsar and the Sri Venkateswara Temple in Tirupati were published in 2017. Bhakti grew up in Delhi. She obtained her graduate degree in Economics and her postgraduate degree in Finance from Delhi University. She holds a Master of Fine Arts Degree in Creative Writing from Hong Kong University. After a long stint as a banker, she now juggles her time between her writing, her passion for long-distance running, yoga and her family. She is also a freelance journalist, and her articles have been published in the South China Morning Post. She lives in Hong Kong with her husband, their two children and two dogs. When not writing or running after her young boys, Bhakti is happiest curled up with a book in one hand and a hot cup of chai in the other.

Bhakti Mathur, private banker by day, mother to Shiv and

Veer (seven and five years old) and an avid delver in Indian

mythology at all other times is the creator of the 'Amma Tell

Me' books - a series of picture books about Indian festivals

and mythology for children in the three to nine year age

group. She wrote and self-published her first book, "Amma

Tell Me About Holi!" in 2011 and over the next 3 years, the

series has grown with books on the festival of Diwali, the

Hindu epic Ramayana and stories about the Hindu gods,

Krishna, Ganesha and Hanuman.

"The real motivation for writing the 'Amma Tell Me' series was

to share with my sons the fascinating stories from Indian

mythology that I had grown up with," says Bhakti. "But, I

found that there were no resources that were simple to

understand and that captured the rich imagery of

mythological India that is such an integral part of these

stories for me. So I went ahead and started writing the stories

in a style that I think kids find fun and non-preachy and

collaborated on the illustrations to bring out the imagery

that I want my stories to convey."

Bhakti grew-up in Delhi. She studied at Modern School Vasant

Vihar. She obtained her graduate degree in Economics and her

post graduate degree in Finance from Delhi University. She is

a CFA charter holder. She currently works for a major Swiss

Bank and lives in Hong Kong with her husband, their two sons

and their beloved golden Labrador.

Bhakti is a committed writer ambassador for Room to Read, a

global non-profit which offers holistic literacy and girls'

education programs.

An avid reader, a long-distance runner and a yoga enthusiast,

when not working or running after her boys, she is happiest

curled up with a book and a hot cup of tea.
