"Ramma Kher (her maiden name) was born in Lahore, India, in 1945. She spent her early childhood in Simla where the stunning beauty of the Himalayas nurtured her great love for nature. Her family moved to Chandigarh in 1952, where she resided until her immigration to Canada in 1968, to obtain her Ph.D degree in Biology. Ramma conducted scientific research for many years before retiring due to ill health. An avid reader, she did some story writing as a young woman but did not publish. After retiring from sciences, poor health and her commitment to her family prevented Ramma from pursuing her desire to write. At last, life is favourable for her to realize her dream. ?The Fifth Dimension? is her first attempt at writing and publishing her works. Ramma lives in Lethbridge, Canada. She is currently working on her second book."
