Yashodhara Lal is a marketing professional and the mother of three children, apart from being a bestselling author. She graduated from IIM Bangalore in 2002 and manages to balance her professional life with her various interests, including fitness, writing and music. She lives in Gurgaon with her rather tolerant husband Vijay and their kids nicknamed Peanut, Pickle and Papad, all of whom never fail to provide her with material for her entertaining blog at yashodharalal.com.
Her first book Just Married, Please Excuse is a hilarious account of marriage. Her second novel Sorting Out Sid is the story of a man having an early midlife crisis and, consequently, a divorce. There’s Something About You is Yashodhara’s third book.
There’s Something About You is definitely not your typical love story. The main protagonist is a fiercely independent woman: unconventional in both her looks and her personality. As bestselling author Ravi Subramanian put it, ‘Funny, fantastic, there’s definitely something about this book. Contemporary romantic fiction at its best.’
There’s Something About You debuted at #2 on the Nielsen Charts in July 2015, making Yashodhara Lal one of the very few female authors to hit top billing in Nielsen.
