Zanni Louise is a children's author from North Coast NSW. She has two small children, who keep her very busy, but also fill her life with inspiration. When not writing children's stories, she writes educational material for training institutions. She provides individual and group blog coaching. Her most recent workshop was at the Byron Bay Writers Festival. She also runs imagination, storytelling and bookmaking workshops for kids, inspiring them to tell their own stories and engage their imaginations. Zanni blogs at My Little Sunshine House, and has been named as a finalist in this year's Kidspot Voices awards. Her first book for children, Too Busy Sleeping, is illustrated by award-winning illustrator Anna Pignataro, and published by Little Hare, an imprint of Hardie Grant Egmont. Too Busy Sleeping is a sweet, homely story about a baby's first day at home from his older sister's perspective. Her second book, Archie & The Bear, is illustrated by highly acclaimed illustrator David Mackintosh.
