Perl's Script: The Perl Series
Perl's Script is my 'magnum opus', my life's work! It is a series of comedy adventure novels tossed in lashings of Wodehousean humor with a light garnish of Science Fiction - a very light garnish: enough to pique the senses without overpowering the palate. If science and technology is not your thing, relax. The plots rest on zany situation, bizarre but lovable characters and comic cross-talk. The two lead protagonists - Perl and Hari - just "happen" to be tech guys. After all, I am an engineer too and I put a bit of myself into Perl and Hari. But Perl prefers to put 'Scientific Detective' and 'Fashion Designer' on her business card; Hari would much rather call himself proprietor of a kind-of-French restaurant cum budding novelist than software guy (a bit like me, I suppose). Their adventures have very, very little to do with technology - involving as they do warring yoga gurus, buffalo bombs, singing cows and alien rock musicians, among other things. But their tech background does help them, when they get into tight situations. Perl can solve most problems with a bit of software and lots of skulduggery.
