Jyoti Yelagalawadi has enjoyed the art of telling stories for her entire life. She passes on this love of storytelling to her students at Lekha School of Creative Writing, of which she is the founder. An avid animal lover who grew up in a family of scientists, Jyoti was initially drawn to the veterinary field, and received her B.S. in Biology and Computer Science and a minor in Creative Writing. Despite her love of science, her passion for writing took over, and many of her written works reflect her love of animals and her interest in the relationship between man and nature. Some of her published works include the educational picture books, Laugh with Dinosaurs and Deep Sea Creatures, as well as the children’s stories Red’s Adventures, Chirpy the Chipmunk, and The Vegetarian Cat. Jyoti’s work has also been published in various magazines.
