If there were a genre called humor or even humour, my books would fall into that. But there isn't one (yet). So you can see here my two funny books on parenting and travel. Both based on my personal and real but slightly exaggerated stories. May be when I am done writing about the drama in my life, I'll make up a story. Based on lives of other people around me. In which case, you would probably want to buy me some chocolate, so that I write good stuff about you.

'What? the baby's here? Okay, that's good. But do you promise me I don't have to do anything else now?'
Once upon a time there was a woman who used to sleep eight hours a day and laze around on weekends. Her clothes were mostly free of gross body fluids and her bag rarely had biscuit crumbs. Then she decided to have a baby.
With books and the internet for friends - and a husband who answered commonsensically - she thought she had it all sorted. But then her baby arrived, and turned everything upside down!
The baby made it his mission to present a new surprise every day. Mommy, after fighting hours of helplessness, came to learn that parenting was a lost battle. There was only one way to survive - keep calm, laugh on and write when the baby dozes. The result : I made a Booboo, a rollicking account of the trials, tribulations and occasional triumphs of a first-time mom.
P.S: Everyone did live happily ever after (albeit only when the baby willed so).
With its tall buildings and tulip-lined canals, the Netherlands is a wonderful place to visit. But what happens when you move there instead?
We asked a group of expat women to share their stories about moving to the land of windmills. From wondering why everyone's curtains are open, to stealing back bicycles, to struggling to get doctors to take you seriously, to having babies, making friends and learning to get along with Dutch colleagues, these women did not hold back in telling their tales of life in the Netherlands.
Whether you are thinking of moving there or have been a resident for years, this book has something to offer. You'll laugh, cry, raise your fist in frustration and nod your head in agreement. Most of all, you'll be enthralled by these stories of everyday life from some not-so-everyday women.
