Leila Rasheed

Leila Rasheed’s first novel for children, 'Chips, Beans and Limousines' was published in 2008 and followed by two sequels which were widely translated. Since then she has written a wide variety of children’s and YA literature, including the 'At Somerton' trilogy for Disney Hyperion, and biographies of Kamala Harris and Katherine Johnson. Her most recent novel is 'Empire’s End: A Roman Story' (Scholastic), which follows the adventures of a North African girl during the late Roman Empire. In 2015 she set up a pioneering scheme to mentor new children’s writers of colour, called Megaphone, now Megaphone Writers CIC.
