Vani Mahesh has a deep-rooted interest in Indian mythology and history. She has worked with Amar Chitra Katha as a script-writer for many years. Her books from ACK include Tales of Creation: Stories from Brahma Purana, Saptarshi: The Seven Supreme Sages. She is the co-author for the novel A Kingdom for His Love. Her recent work, The Glory of Shiva Purana, was published by Sri Ramakrishna Math.
Though a software engineer by profession, books are Vani's passion. After working at IBM, California, for three years, she moved back to India to start her own online lending library EasyLib which she successfully ran for thirteen years.
