About the author

Anne Lavallee

Anne is a Canadian author who was born and raised in Northeastern Ontario. After graduating from high school, she then moved to Ottawa, Ontario to further her education. She graduated from the Library & Information Program at Algonquin College with honours. She currently lives in Brockville, Ontario.

She always dreamt of becoming an author and that dream has become a reality with her first picture book Abby and Amina. The characters Abby and Amina are based on herself and her dear friend Nancie.

In early 2016 she had surgery on her brainstem, leaving her wheelchair-bound and with other deficits. However, ill-fated the results of her surgery, she never lost hope.

Anne finds reading, baking, cuddling with her cat and being in nature very therapeutic. She enjoys watching animated movies, is a huge animal lover and likes doing activities and crafts that she can be creative with.
