About The Author – Mohit Goyal
Mohit Goyal was born on 29th September 1983. The love he found at the age of 15 was for books and a penchant for writing. Basically as a teenager, he concluded that writing was a non-existent career option, not one where you can churn money. He kept writing nevertheless, albeit in form of some short stories here and there or an odd article. After finishing Bachelors in Business, he ventured out to set up his own business. He then went to London and enrolled for a Masters in Logistics from Cranfield University. Mohit got a chance to run his international logistics business in several Asian countries and collaborated with some of the best minds of trade.
In 2015, he finally took the plunge of typing out his first book. He’d say typing it out, because the stories were always there (in his mind). It required a crafty effort to bring them out in a way that it entertained and inspired readers.
Mohit is married to Pragya and the couple have a son named Luv. Mohit loves listening to music, following cricket and enjoys travelling especially food trips.
