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.
