She is also a sex and relations-counsellor since 1992. In the autumn of 2004 Katerina Janouch´s first children's book was published, Så blev jag till (How I became) illustrated by Mervi Lindman. The book handles all the questions that can come up when a child is getting a sibling. Writing a children´s book felt natural for Katerina Janouch. She has five children of her own and claims to be writing the books that she always wanted to read to them. Her inspiration comes from her surroundings and her family.
