When Manju was a preschooler in New Jersey, her mom supplied her with pencils, crayons, and three-foot rolls of white paper from the local newspaper. It was Manju’s job to fill that paper with storytelling pictures.
Now she lives in Indiana with her husband, two teenagers and two forever puppies (Calvin and Cara). She writes stories about creatures from far away lands and doodles in the margins.
My stories and poetry connect children with endangered animals as well as backyard creatures. I want to create empathy for children who are considered different and endangered animals who are disappearing from our earth.
