Long Bio

Prashant Pinge was born and brought up in the picturesque neighbourhood of Shivaji Park in the bustling city of Mumbai in India.

A quiet and diligent student throughout his schooling and college years, Prashant proceeded to pursue electrical engineering at Purdue University in the United States. Over the next decade, he accumulated three more degrees, a master of science in management from Lancaster University, a post graduate program in management from Indian School of Business, and a post MBA master in international management from Thunderbird School of Global Management.

Apart from enjoying the company of books, Prashant had always had an imaginative bent of mind. But writing only happened in the fall of 2003, when a remarkably intriguing dream interrupted an uncharacteristically deep spell of slumber, compelling him to stagger to his desk and pen down the idea. That book is still a few years away from being written. Prashant, however, continues to work from his cauldron of creativity and churn out critically acclaimed works of fiction.

In addition to his literary pursuits, Prashant has recently forayed into the world of entertainment.

In his spare time, Prashant enjoys collecting old coins, reading fiction, watching movies, and listening to music. He recently wrote and produced a short film titled Freedom of Expression. Prashant is also keenly interested in the subjects of psychology, mythology and ancient history.

Short Bio

Prashant Pinge loves stringing words together to create enchanting stories for children. He also utterly disregards reality. Little wonder then that he prefers residing in sixteenth-century England next to the Bard’s house, where he spends his days in the company of his characters and nights taming wild dragons.

Prashant’s books, Raja & the Giant Donut (Leadstart Publishing) and Adventure on Wheels (Scholastic), were shortlisted for the Economist Crossword Book Award and the Raymond Crossword Book Award in the Children’s Writing (jury) category in 2011 and 2016 respectively.

Prashant also writes romantic comedies and historical fiction.
