Inspired by her travels and life experience, Leela’s fiction covers a range of subjects, from the Peace Movement in the 1980s (Rubik’s Cube) to artificial intelligence and the 20th-century history of Indian and German-Jewish families (Mathison). Kingfisher Blue is a collection of short stories, and Bridge House is publishing another collection next year, entitled Fresh Beginnings. Only a Signal Shown was inspired by a friend who said it was a pity her fiction wasn't as good as the marvellous letters she always wrote his family when she went abroad to places like India, Rome, South Africa, Nigeria, Lesotho, Iceland, the USA... and so on. Well she tried! This book is no longer for sale - Leela is re-writing it and is under contract with 186 Publishing.
