Nayanika Mahtani

Nayanika Mahtani is a copywriter by day and a storyteller by night. Her first children’s novel, Ambushed, is set in tiger territory with all royalties going towards a school for the children of former poachers to offer them a window to alternate livelihoods. Her latest book, The Gory Story of Genghis Khan a.k.a. Don’t Mess with the Mongols, invites children in for a closer look at this most fascinating Khan. She is now working on a book, a web series and a film.
