Suma Subramaniam loves to travel and visit historical places and museums like Claudia does in Manhattan. Even though the Metropolitan Museum of Art is only a flight away, Suma prefers to live in the Pacific Northwest with her family. Someday, she hopes to show Claudia how to wear a sari and how to make the classic masala chai. Suma has an MFA in Creative Writing from Vermont College of Fine Arts, a Certificate in Popular Fiction from the University of Washington, and advanced degrees in computer science and management. She works with children globally to promote education.
