Anna Fargher was raised in a creative hub on the Suffolk coast by an artist and a ballet teacher. She read English Literature at Goldsmiths before working in the British art world and opening her own gallery. She wrote her first book, The Umbrella Mouse, on her iPhone notepad during her daily commute on the London Underground, and it was selected as Waterstones Book of the Month. She is also the author of The Fire Cats of London. She splits her time between London and Suffolk where she is often found exploring the coastline and marshlands under the huge East Anglian skies.
