Annabelle Sami is a London-based writer at the beginning of her career. In 2017, she was a Winchester Writer’s Festival scholar and she has an MA in English Literature from Queen Mary University.
Daniela Sosa, the illustrator of ‘Agent Zaiba’, is originally from Romania, but now lives in Cambridge and is completing a master’s degree in children’s book illustrations at the Cambridge School of Art. She loves to travel, which is where she gets a lot of her inspiration from.
Determined to be the world’s greatest detective, Zaiba is always on the lookout for a crime to solve. She knows everything there is to know about running an investigation – in theory…
At her cousin’s Mehndi party, Zaiba gets her first challenge: to discover the identity of the VIP staying at the same hotel. With the help of her best friend Poppy and brother Ali, Zaiba puts her sleuthing skills to the test. And when the celebrity’s precious dog disappears, along with its priceless diamond collar, it’s up to the trio to save the day! The first in a fun, fresh and exciting new detective series, featuring a British-Pakistani heroine, this series has a diverse ensemble cast that readers everywhere can relate. Zaiba is a spirited, witty and adventurous character in a story perfect for fans of Robin Stevens, Katherine Woodfine, ‘High Rise Mystery’ and ‘Nancy Drew’.
