Right off the bat, author and life coach Neelam Kumar is vibrant and warm – something of a surprise considering her long and arduous life journey. Neelam survived the death of her beloved husband, two bouts of cancer, and has gone on to write 10 books, not just to document her own life but also to provide an avenue for others struggling to find hope in dark times. So truly, she has striven to inspire us all to face adversities without backing down.

Her books span across genres and include Our Favourite Indian Stories by Khushwant Singh and Neelam Kumar (JAICO ) as well as the latest bestseller, To Cancer-With Love – My Journey of Joy (Hay House, 2015.) Neelam has written India’s first humorous book on cancer as well as India’s first graphic novel on cancer. Globally educated and widely traveled, Neelam has been educated in countries as diverse as Russia and the United States of America. Neelam is a motivational speaker, trainer of soft skills, corporate trainer, writer, and of course a ‘Cancer Crusader’ as she has batted the C-word twice.
Neelam has three decades of experience in working in India’s largest steel company as Chief of Communications (Public Relations) and DGM (Corporate Affairs). She owns her own training outfit through which she conducts very popular training programs on communication skills, etiquette, life skills, spoken and written skills for corporates, schools, and institutes.

She is passionate about life skills and developing unique modules around them. Her successful programs run across age and gender. As Life Skills Coach at R.N.

A firm believer in the immense potential each human being possesses, she enjoys guiding participants to tap their latent talent and wisdom in order to transform their realities. This book is a result of this belief.
Influenced by Alfred Hitchcock, Neelam wrote thrillers with unusual endings. Her life was abuzz with more interesting authors and romantic poets: her favorite being Sidney Sheldon’s heroine-centric novel – ‘If Tomorrow Comes’.
