It Takes a Lot of Knocks - talking about first novels with Jasbinder Bilan
Jasbinder and Sophia both got their publishing break by winning the Times/Chicken House Children’s Fiction Competition. Jasbinder went on to win the Costa Children’s Book Award with 'Asha and the Spirit Bird'. Sophia talks to her about the experience of writing that book and the slow and tortuous process of getting it good enough to publish.
