Abhishek Rawat

Abhishek Rawat is a senior leader in a multinational tech company and a former management consultant. A pan-genre consumer of books, Abhishek used his time at IIT Guwahati and IIM Indore to whet his appetite reading eclectic fiction and non-fiction, while occasionally also studying to get his degrees. 

For years, Abhishek nursed his ambition to be an author by writing stories about fantasy, crime, palace intrigue, espionage and superheroes that are collecting digital dust in folders tucked so deeply as to merit archaeological excavations.

However, inspiration came in the way of his daughter Aashvi, who like her dad, is an unbiased patron of all kinds of illustrated children’s literature and who opened Abhishek’s eyes to a wonderful new genre where imagination is truly unfettered. “The Tale of Joad” is the Abhishek’s first book and a token of his gratitude to both Aashvi and the amazing adventure-land that is children’s illustrated literature.
