Hey Lela, good to be here.

Tell us something about yourself.

binmore-author-picBritish born and now divide time between my homes in London and South of France with my partner, dog, cats and over 500 pairs of shoes.  Aside from writing I own and manage a small bed and breakfast – Maison De L’Orb – so throughout the summer I get to be inspired by guests from all corners of the world who stay with us.

The children’s story was called “The Grass People.” It was an allegory of spring and summer, especially in terms of how the grass looks.
