Chips, Beans and Limousines: The Fantastic  Diary of Bathsheba Clarice de Trop! is my first children's book, published by Usborne Fiction. Age 9 - 11.

www.usborne.co.uk/bathsheba

There will be two sequels, which I'm working on now.

Leila,

I've just read an extract on the Usborne website with my daughter Georgina reading over my shoulder. She seems interested, and it looks like a really fun series. It reminds me of books in the Tracy Beaker/Karen McCombie mould. I've placed a copy in my Amazon shopping basket.

My friend Sophia had her first teen novel published by Piccadilly, it's called Growing Yams in London, it's a really amusing and poignant account of the culture clashes experienced by 2nd and 3rd generation Africans born in the UK (Sophia and I both being 2nd generation Africans). Take a look:
