Leila Rasheed: children’s author
Hello! My name is Leila and I write books and stories for children and teenagers. In the ten years since I was first published, I have written
– fiction and non-fiction
– short stories and long novels
– funny books and exciting books
– books about history, magic and science.
My most recent book is called Empire’s End. It’s the story of Camilla, a Roman girl from Leptis Magna in Libya, who sets out on an exciting and terrifying journey through the Roman Empire to the very edge of the known world – Britain. It’s shortlisted for the Tower Hamlets Book Award 2020: https://www.towerhamlets-sls.org.uk/thba20/
Book Trust said “The inclusion of real characters, places and events make Empire’s End all the more tense and thrilling…”: https://www.booktrust.org.uk/book/e/empires-end-a-roman-story/
