Anna Ciddor has made her name as a versatile writer and illustrator of fiction, travel and historical books.
Anna’s forthcoming novel, The Boy Who Stepped Through Time, is a perfect match for the 2021 CBCA Book Week theme Old Worlds, New worlds, Other worlds. It is a gripping adventure that immerses readers in a world filled with excitement, laughter, and amazing (and accurate) historical detail about life in Gaul in ancient Roman times. It will be published by Allen and Unwin in June 2021.
Talks and workshops
Anna has created an entertaining and incredibly useful presentation where she reveals in front of the students’ eyes how she plans a book, creates an illustration draft, how and where she researches, and all the effort that goes into the whole process from first idea to finished work. It is suitable for Years 4-7.
There is also a bonus offer. For the first time in her writing career, Anna worked with a professional historian and archaeologist, and the researcher is available to come along to some sessions too for no additional cost. Enquire when you book.
