I write mostly for children
but sometimes I meander off to write for
grown-ups too. You will find out about my
books and my life here and I hope you have
read or will enjoy reading them.
My stories are of different
kinds, funny and sad, scary and mysterious.
Some come from my own experiences, others
are just made up. I also like to retell
ancient Indian folktales, legends and myths.
There are so many of them that I will never
run out of material!
Though now I live in the busy
and crowded city of New Delhi, I grew up
in a very quiet little town in the foothills
of the Himalayas. My stories are set in
both these places as well as other interesting
ones I have visited.
