Annabelle Fisher decided she would become a writer in fourth grade when, after a lesson on electricity, she wrote the story “Mr. Electron” instead of the science report her teacher was expecting–and got an A+ anyway! She is the author of THE SECRET DESTINY OF PIXIE PIPER, which reviewers have called, “entertaining,” “fresh,” “creative,” and “pretty darn charming.” A sequel, PIXIE PIPER AND THE MATTER OF THE BATTER, will be released in May 2017. Annabelle has been a professor of middle grade and young adult literature at Manhattanville College, and has taught writing workshops for kids and adults at her favorite indie bookstore, The Voracious Reader. With her husband and their giant golden doodle Ozzie, she lives in Westchester County, New York, just a short drive from The Metropolitan Museum, where she often goes for inspiration.
