Anika A Wolf was born, raised, and still resides in Canada, although her heart belongs to the Caribbean.

She’s been drawing ever since she could hold a crayon (how cliché – but true!) and always knew she’d be destined for a career in the arts. She's an illustrator, writer and designer who is in love with storytelling. And when she's not creating stories – well, she’s reading stories, of course!

She also loves spending time in nature wherever possible, and getting oodles of doggie cuddles from her newfie Mumford. Anika is a Sagittarian, self-proclaimed Silly Billy, and Unicorn Enthusiast.
