Zanni Louise is a children's author and illustrator, based in Northern NSW. Her stunning debut picture book Too Busy Sleeping is fast becoming the must-have gift for newborns and a bedtime favourite for families everywhere. Her new series Tiggy And The Magic Paintbrush is aimed at early readers, 4-7 years old, and explores themes of imagination, creativity, friendship and problem-solving.
We spoke to Zanni about what inspires her as a writer, and asked what advice she would give to emerging writers.
