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, 2019), is an Indian-American middle grade mashup of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and competitive baking. She is also the author of Seven Golden Rings (PB, Lee & Low, September 2020), Bracelets for Bina’s Brothers (PB, Charlesbridge, April 2021), Much Ado About Baseball (MG, Yellow Jacket/Little Bee Books, June 2021), The Secret Code Inside You (PB, Little Bee Books, October 2021), I’ll Go and Come Back (PB, Candlewick, 2022), Where Three Oceans Meet (PB, Abrams, 2022) and other forthcoming books.
