Rajani LaRocca was born in India, raised in Kentucky, and now lives in the Boston area with her wonderful family and impossibly cute dog. After graduating from 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 6/4/19), is an Indian-American middle grade mashup of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and competitive baking. She is also the author of the picture books Seven
Golden Rings (Lee & Low, 2020), I’ll Go and Come Back (Candlewick, 2022), and other forthcoming books. Learn more about her at www.RajaniLaRocca.com and on Twitter and Instagram @rajanilarocca.
