About the speaker

Bali Rai was born in 1971 and grew up in Leicester. As a child, Bali wanted to be a footballer or to write stories. He realised he wasn’t good enough to play for Liverpool FC, so after gaining a politics degree in London he returned to his home city and combined a variety of jobs with completing his first novel.

He wanted to write accessible material for children of all ages and backgrounds, and realising there were no British Asian authors writing for children, he saw a gap. Bali’s novels include Now or Never, (Un)arranged Marriage, The Crew and many more.
