Meet Mohit Goyal, Author of Colorful Notions
As a young boy Mohit was never interested in studies. Cricket was Mohit’s first love and that’s what kept him busy all day. His family recalls instances of him skipping school to join boys from his locality to play cricket. The game of cricket led Mohit to read his first book. The book had an image of a boy with a cricket bat on its cover and this made Mohit quite inquisitive.
The book was none other than SWAMI AND HIS FRIENDS by RK Narayan. This is when he realized the power of stories and fantasy living. One book after the other, Mohit got hooked to novels and books and would spend hours every day reading books. His family was quite encouraging and supportive considering that their boy was learning something new every day. He gradually dreamt of being on the other side of the shore, i.e. Writing books and getting others engaged and hooked to fantasies created by him.
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.
Today Mohit Goyal is a published author who has sold more than thousands of copies of his novel ‘Colorful Notions’. Let us have look into the childhood of Mohit.
Mohit did his schooling from Ramjas School, New Delhi. During his school days Mohit was an average student in studies. However, his confidence got a major boost when he managed to score one of the highest marks in in class 12th boards.

In 2015, Mohit started writing my first book. After scanning the pulp fiction market, he realized that it is loaded with love stories; closely followed by mythology and crime fiction. But other genres were broadly missing. Therefore, Mohit started developing what would be India’s first-travel-fiction series under the title – The RoadTrippers. Its 1.0 (Colorful Notions) had a soft launch in Nov-2016 followed by a presentation of book to popular Bollywood action Mr. Vinay Pathak.
