Zanni Louise writes warm stories for children, with a twist of quirk and sprinkle of humour. Her first picture book, Too Busy Sleeping, with Anna Pignataro (Little Hare), was long listed for the 2016 CBCA Book Awards.
Zanni’s four book series for independent readers, Tiggy and the Magic Paintbrush, will be released with Bonnier Publishing in 2018.
Zanni runs storytelling and bookmaking workshops for children. In these fun sessions, Zanni helps kids harness their incredible imaginations, and evolve their storytelling abilities. She also runs blogging and creative writing classes for adults.
Zanni lives with her two daughters and husband in her little sunshine house on the north coast of NSW, Australia.
