Annabelle Sami

Annabelle is a writer, director and performer who currently works in the arts and has two middle-grade series out with Stripes and Egmont next year. It was whilst reading children’s books when babysitting that she realised there was a lack of representation of funny girls and diverse characters in children’s books – and she decided to do something about it. Growing up mixed-race, she never found her own life reflected in a book and now it’s her mission to make sure that every spirited, witty and adventurous girl has her own special book that she can relate to.
