Sandhya Menon is the author of the YA rom-com When Dimple Met Rishi (Simon and Schuster, May 2017), which has been hailed by Bustle magazine as "the arranged marriage YA rom-com we've been waiting for." She was born and raised in India on a steady diet of Bollywood movies and street food. She pretty much blames this upbringing for her obsession with happily-ever-afters, bad dance moves, and pani puri. Sandhya currently lives just outside Colorado Springs, where she’s on a mission to (gently) coerce her husband, son, and daughter to watch all 3,220 Bollywood movies she claims as her favorite.
