This is an introduction to my book: "Living Parallel Lives in Qatar 

Stories from Locals and Expats" (2013) and my background for writing it. I hope the book is informative and interesting reading. It is intended for you, who are already living as expats, on your way out in the world, if you are back home having family and friends out there around the world, or if you just like to read about different lifestyles.


There is an introduction to Qatar - past, present and future.


You get a glimpse of Western family life in the Middle East. 


Finally, you get the stories about 3 local Qataris and more than 10 other nationalities, who have chosen to live and work in Qatar.
