Ranjini Iyer was born in Germany and grew up in India. She trained as an engineer purely because she hero worshipped her PhD holding dad. She then got herself an MBA in the U.S and stayed on.
Even as she pursued careers as a business owner, small business consultant, film producer and non profit managing director, there always remained an urge to write that had been there since childhood.
Following the birth of her children, she focused more and more on writing. Eventually, some of it became passably good.
The Colossus is her first (well…published) novel.
