About the Author

Suneeta Misra has been a teacher in the Maryland school district of the Washington, D.C., metro area, for the last twenty years. She also likes to tell stories and in that vein, has written and directed several documentary films and short feature films regarding the state of rural education in India. Most of her stories are focused around strong female protagonists in a rural Indian landscape, since this environment is patriarchal in nature and has seen many crimes against women. Some of these crimes include female infanticide, child marriage, and honor killings of girls who dare marry outside the community. She has recently published her first novel, "Rani of Rampur," and a novelette, "Of Kings and Queens," both of which are set in mythical Indian villages and center around strong female characters. She has also written several short stories and screenplays, which she hopes to turn into films one day.

It explores a world little known to the western reader- that of rural India with its political intrigue and a brutal feudal structure. Reading the book is well worth the time invested as you go on a train journey with the protagonist Rani to visit the village of Rampur and the ancestral home of her extended family whom she has never met.
