Hello, Thanks for checking out my site. My name is Ramya (pronounced Rum-ya) and I go by the pen name R.G. Spaulding. I am on my second career as an Author/Illustrator after being an engineer for a very long time.
I live in Silicon Valley with my wonderful husband and 2 teenage daughters and 2 adorable 4 legged boys who keep me very busy and always supply me with ample writing materials. My family is as American as Apple pie and Butter dosa 😉
I am proud to be a member of the Diversity, equity and Inclusion committee within 12×12 where I can contribute to making the kidlit community more diverse and inclusive.
Some classes that have helped me become a better author-illustrator:
- Susana Hills’s Making picture book magic class.
- Marcie Coleen’s Study Hall.
- Storyteller Academy
- The Writing Barn
