What inspired you to write your book?
My many flights between the UK and other destinations
Here is a short sample from the book:
Why am I always late? I ask myself as I run into the mini cab, thinking about all the items that I forgot to pack. As Chief Executive Operator in my software consultancy company, you would think I would be more organized, but looks are always deceiving.
No one would think that under this cool exterior was a frightened, nervous woman just waiting to jump out and scream at every opportunity. And right now, she was screaming, “Do not be late. Do not miss that flight.”
Everyone told me not to buy a house in Central London, especially since the Congestion Charge was put in place. My parents warned me that people would need to pay to come and see me. I explained, “It is only during the week days and I am at work during the week days. In the evening, and on weekends, parking is free.”
My dad asked, “Well, what happens when you have a baby? We will only come and see you on the weekends and evenings.”
I thought, Wow, what is it with my parents? They think of everything. I am single and 35 years old. I did not even have a potential for a husband and they have put a baby in my stomach. My mother kindly reminded me that technology has changed and I did not have to wait for a man. I could simply go and purchase some sperm at the sperm bank.
I never knew what disturbed me more – the fact that my mother had suggested I buy sperm at the bank, or the whole idea of relying on a sperm bank to purchase sperm!
