Annabel Tellis - Author

Annabel Tellis, author of If My Dad Were a Dog, was born in 1967 and now divides her time between Victoria, Australia and Leicestershire, England. She grew up in a small village called Swepstone near Ashby-de-la-Zouch. After school she studied Engish and PE at Christchurch College in Canterbury, then did teacher training at Loughborough University. (In between that she worked in the Royal Household at Balmoral Castle as a dining room assistant.)

The books she would most like to have written include Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown and The Tiger who Came to Tea by Judith Kerr. Her advice for would be authors is to ‘treat writing and illustrating as a craft that requires time and never give up.’ Annabel is currently working on a new children's fiction series for The Chicken House.
