Author Profile

Anjali Mittal, a graduate from the University of York is a mother of two who understands how important it is for children to read. The author of ‘The Convent Rules‘, an adventure story for children, has a diverse international background. The different cultures and environments has given her an extraordinary insight into all walks of life and these experiences are reflected in the characters and setting for her stories. Having attended a boarding school herself from an early age has provided the author with the opportunity to amuse the readers with some tales of real life experiences that have been challenging, full of incident but not without their trials and tribulations. The author believes in encouraging children to read by making books stimulating and different to their day to day lives so that they get fully immersed into the fictitious fantasy. Short-listed for the 2009 ‘Write a story for children’ competition. Comment from judges of The Academy of Children’s writers – ‘you obviously have an understanding of young people that impressed our panel. A quality that is invaluable to a would-be children’s writer. This, together with your ‘way of words’ indicates a natural talent.
