Tottie Limejuice Sell the Pig travel memoirs series
The Sell the Pig series is a ‘trilogy’ of travel books with a twist, six volumes so far, describing how the author moved to France with her elderly and confused mother. Six books in a trilogy? Well, Tottie’s not very good at sums! Sell the Pig, Is That Billinge Lump?, Mother Was It Worth It?, Biff the Useless Mention, Angling Bumateurs, and Trot On! There is now a French translation available of the first book in the Sell the Pig series, Maman, Vends le Cochon.
In addition, under the pen-name Tottie Limejuice, Lesley has also written a travelogue, Hobbit House in Italy, plus a humorous collection of the exchanges between her and one of her team of beta-readers, Kate Pill. A light-hearted look at what goes on behind the scenes in the production of one of her books. It’s called No Girl on this Train.
2016 marked a first for Lesley with the release of her début illustrated children’s fiction novel, with a crime twist, The Dog with the Golden Eyes, written as L M Kay.
