Good to meet you…author Leah DeCesare
One of the best things about keeping this blog has been the amazing people I’ve met from all around the world because of it. A few months ago Leah DeCesare got in touch through my contact page. It was lovely to meet her – and even more of a pleasure when I found out Leah was about to take a trip to Uganda (the country where I was born) to visit the Kampala Children’s Centre.
I’m delighted to welcome Leah today, and I’m really looking forward to getting to know her!
Where do you live, Leah? I live in East Greenwich, Rhode Island. I’m here 11 years now – but as far as “real” Rhode Islanders are concerned, I’m not yet an official Rhode Islander 🙂
Where is your favourite place in the world? Traveling is one of my favorite things – so I could name any number of places I’ve loved visiting, but my favorite place is a little beachside community on the Connecticut coast. Groton Long Point is where I’ve spent my summers my whole life, and it is a little piece of paradise in the Long Island Sound.
That does sound heavenly!
Being a writer is a great job. What’s the worst job you’ve ever had? In desperation one summer, I accepted a job as a door-to-door encyclopaedia salesperson – I’m not kidding! I did it for exactly ONE DAY and went back to waitressing. What a painful job that was. Clearly it was before Google, but it didn’t make the job any less difficult.
That must have been a total nightmare. Well done for at least giving it a try! Read more…
