About the Author

Komal Singh is a techie by day and a storyteller mom by night - one who loves coding and cupcakes, data crunching
and daydreaming, pottery making and program planning. This is her second book about Ara’s STEM adventures. The
first, Ara the Star Engineer was inspired by her 4-year-old daughter's hypothesis that "engineers are boys". Singh is
passionate about using technology as an enabler and an equalizer for all. Komal grew up in India and studied
Computer Science at Delhi University and later moved to Canada to complete her Masters’ degree in C.S from Simon
Fraser University. She has worked as a software engineer with tech consulting firms and is currently an Engineering
Program Manager at Google. Komal lives in Waterloo, Canada, with her husband and two little kids.

freelancer for the last several years for companies such as Oxford University Press, London-based Nucco Brain and
was a guest artist for Google Doodles. She has a fine arts degree in animation from Anadolu University, and she lives
in Turkey.
