Rashmi Sirdeshpande: The Question Diary

Rashmi Sirdeshpande is a lawyer turned author of non-fiction picture books such as How to Be Extraordinary and How to Change the World. She says:

I have so many questions that pop into my head everyday. You might want to put your questions in your diary. It might start as a question but it might end up as a piece of art, or a comic strip or a story ...

In 2018, Rashmi was selected as one of 11 Penguin Random House mentees on the WriteNow programme for underrepresented voices in publishing. Her first fiction picture book Never Show a T-Rex a Book, illustrated by Diane Ewen, has just come out. Rashmi lives in Buckinghamshire with her family and when she’s not playing with words, you’ll find her on her yoga mat, twisting herself into all sorts of shapes.
