Yesterday I was in Den Haag again for a reading and talk with Leila Rasheed, the author of Chips, Beans and Limousines and its sequal, Socks, Shocks and Secrets. The books are about the fantastic diaries of Bathsheba Clarice de Trop, whose super-starry world might not be all that it seems. The third book will be out soon.
Leila read selections from her books--very funny, sweet, and real--then talked a bit about her path to publication, which is a complicated story. But she got there eventually, and her books are lovely. Check them out!
