Annie Barrows is the enormously talented author of many acclaimed books including the Ivy + Bean series, The Magic Half, and The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society. She has also written non-fiction books under the pen name Ann Fiery. Annie’s latest book in the Ivy + Bean series is No News Is Good News. She worked for years as an editor until she decided to write children’s books like the ones she loved growing up. Her dedicated fans are eternally grateful she decided to pursue her dream.

Nicki Richesin: Congratulations on your great success with the Ivy + Bean series. When I gave my daughter your latest book No News Is Good News, she disappeared with a greedy look in her eye and resurfaced a few hours later. It must feel incredibly satisfying to know children are devoted to the characters you’ve brought to life with your words and eager to read about their next adventures.
