I loved words. I love to sing them and speak them and even now, I must admit, I have fallen into the joy of writing them. Anne Rice

About Me a.k.a. The Author



I am Roshni Menon. Mother of 3 beautiful babies, and an ENT Surgeon in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

While not operating, doing clinics, writing scientific papers or being mummy, I spend my time dreaming….story- weaving in my mind! It’s not many minutes in a day when I can do it but it’s become far more often as TGD has progressed.

It is certainly a very relaxing endeavour and considering my A type personality, an infinitely worthy one. The learning curve has been steep but well, bring it on!

I have an extremely supportive husband who despite his belief that my scientific mind is stronger than my creative one, has had to admit in recent days that I do have some creative  talents. Being my rock, he has not only provided grounding but also suggested many amazing ideas!

We have a library of close to 350 children’s books at home. We have authors from all over the world on our bookshelves. However, very few of them are written by Malaysians.  I believed  it was possible to come up with a trully cosmopolitan book that was sophisticated enough for the world market. This was part of the inspiration to come up with TGD. That’s why it is an all Malaysian book (author, artists, editor, graphic designer, printer, publisher)

I would love to hear your thoughts and please do share any similar experiences.

Happy reading!

    Hi Roshni

    Living on the Gold Coast, Oz.
    Got a lil person myself who devours books, and another one one the way…so would definitely love a copy of your book!!…Funny, I’m toyed with the idea of some form of a little people’s book, but so far it has just remained a nice idea in my mind. Very happy to see you venturing and the level of thought, detail and personal touch. You were always creative and clever with words, from what I recall of the teenage Roshni from years gone back!!

    Hi Roshini,

    Firstly congratulation upon your new adventure. To be honest i do not know how you find the time to do what you do with your busy schedule as a surgeon and mom but one must admit that i admire your hard work and talent. I have always had an excuse for not pursuing or push myself to do what i want to do but your work has given me a knock on me head and has given the courage to pursue what my heart says no matter what!!
    Very much looking forward to the book and all the very best to you and your crew.. god bless..

    Hey roshni, Good luck with the book launch. I can barely get through laundry, look after the kids and get food on the table, let alone manage a career and get this project going. Well done. X
