Sunita Pillay was born in the great city of Chicago and raised in nearby Northwest Indiana. She attended Loyola University of Chicago, earning a B.A. in History with a minor in African-American Studies. Soon afterward, she attended Teachers College, Columbia University, earning a Master of Arts in the Teaching of English. Sunita has over two decades of experience teaching students of all ages from middle school through college. She also has several years of experience as an educational publishing editor specializing in standardized tests and textbooks.
For fun, Sunita enjoys revising her near-future dystopian novel, chronically attempting to understand quantum physics, cooking vegetarian meals, and hanging with her partner, Leif, his son, Skyler, and their two North Carolina hound dogs, Banzai and Duke Nukem.
