About the Author

Lynelle Seow is convinced that she must have been Indian in her previous life, given her interest in all things Indian. In this life, she is a Singaporean who has dreams of being a Bollywood dancer despite the reality of two left feet and an incredible lack of coordination. She holds a Master of Architecture, but prefers to build castles in the air and bridges to other cultures. She has lived and worked in Singapore, the United States, the Philippines and India as various avatars; architect, editor, branding-marketing professional, and volunteer English teacher. She is married to Benjamin Yap and they have 8 plants together. She currently resides in Singapore.
