Navdeep Singh Dhillon lives in NYC with his wife and feisty three-year-old daughter, who thinks everything is negotiable. He writes about parenting, family travel and book on his travel blog at ishqinabackpack.com . A recent graduate of the Writers’ Institute at CUNY, he is working on a novel, just like that dog on Family Guy. He holds an MFA in creative writing and teaches fiction, literature, and other subjects needed to launch a lucrative career in the arts.
