Kiran A Bacche is a computer science graduate working in the IT industry for nearly two decades. He has had keen interest in mathematics and puzzles since childhood. He loves teaching mathematics, and has authored articles explaining some of the concepts, related to mathematics and science, in a simple way. He also likes inventing new puzzles based on the mathematical concepts, apart from solving any puzzle that comes by his way. So bringing these two things, mathematics and puzzles, together became his dream and motivated him to write this book.
Kiran lives with his parents, wife and two kids in Bangalore. His hobbies also include playing music, gardening and playing sports.
