Ishita Agarwal was born in Panchkula and has lived in a number of cities before returning close to her birthplace, Chandigarh, where she is currently studying. She spends her free time reading, playing the guitar and blasting away the bad guys in MarioKart and Legend of Zelda on her Nintendo Wii. If she could choose to be gifted with one superpower, it would be flying, as she would rather soar in the open sky than in a claustrophobic aeroplane. Apart from closed flying contraptions, she is terrified of dogs. Her writing influences include John Green, Meg Cabot and Louise Rennison. She hopes that, in the years to come, Indian teenagers will have access to a wider range of books they can identify with. Lieable is Ishita’s first published work.
