Anwesha Mittra works as an editor with a travel website. The writing bug got the better of her after the birth of her baby girl, Poy, in 2017 and the same year she decided to pen an anthology of short stories dedicated to the eight virtues of life she values the most. Virtues she thought her girl too could imbibe while sampling some nice storytelling. No Lemon... is a manifestation of that idea. Anwesha lives in New Delhi, and wishes to write more books for children, and if there's still some time to spare she would like to keep up her passion for baking cakes.
