Rajani LaRocca was born in India, raised in Kentucky, and now lives in the Boston area with her wonderful family and impossibly cute dog. A graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Medical School, she spends her time writing novels and picture books, practicing medicine, and baking too many sweet treats. Her middle grade debut, Midsummer’s Mayhem (Yellow Jacket/Little Bee Books), an Indian-American mashup of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and competitive baking, was called a “delectable treat” in its starred Kirkus review and was selected for the Kirkus Best Middle Grade Books of 2019 list, A Mighty Girl’s Best Books of 2019, and a Nerdy Book Award. Her debut picture book, Seven Golden Rings: A Tale of Music and Math (Lee & Low, 2020) is set in ancient India and introduces the basics of binary numbers. She is also the author of the forthcoming novel Much Ado About Baseball (Yellow Jacket/Little Bee Books 2021) and picture books Bracelets For Brothers (Charlesbridge, 2021), I’ll Go and Come Back (Candlewick, 2022), and Where Three Oceans Meet (Abrams, 2022).
