Author Biography

Author, illustrator, and dentist, Ramya Julian finished her first novel at the age of ten and she avers it was very well received though it was read only by her brother. She has all the hobbies of a maiden Victorian aunt – reading, writing, painting, crocheting, knitting, and sewing, and the temperament of one. When she’s not guilt-tripping her two daughters into good behaviour, she can be found devouring books, crafting poems and puns, and chuckling at her own witticisms. She grew up in India and now lives with her husband and their two daughters in London.
She has experienced so much joy through the enchanting artistry of many authors and creators, that she aspires to share at least some of it through her writing.

Reviewed by Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers' Favorite

What is STEM? It’s an acronym and we’re familiar with acronyms in an era that lives by them. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Medicine. There are a lot of men and women who have excelled in different strands of STEM, but more has been written about men than women. Women in STEM - Marie Curie, Mary Seacole, Muthulakshmi Reddy, and Wang Zhenyi by Ramya Julian remedies this. These four women each contributed to their chosen fields, some distinguishing themselves in more than just one strand. Marie Curie was a physicist and a chemist who became not only the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, but the first woman to win two Nobel Prizes. She achieved all she had aspired to through hard work, perseverance, and dedication to her field of study.

Ramya Julian’s nonfiction work, Women in STEM - Marie Curie, Mary Seacole, Muthulakshmi Reddy, and Wang Zhenyi, is part of the Children’s Biography Series. Meant to educate young readers about famous people, the book also serves to inspire them to dream big and work hard. The biographies of the four women are short and written in as simple language as possible, some in rhyming verse, all in bold type with lots of colorful illustrations. The author presents the basics of each woman’s contribution to their field of research. Each short biography ends with this encouraging and inspirational quote: “A wonderful person – just like you!” Young minds are never too young to learn to dream big and to work hard to fulfill their dreams. This is a great resource for young readers as well as being engaging and interesting.
