Gabriella Richard was born in the Congo but grew up in beautiful Scandinavia where nature is literally just outside your doorstep. She was surrounded by the rolling countryside of the south of Sweden as a child and the magical archipelago of Stockholm's coast in her teens.
She currently still lives in England with her husband. She has 14 nieces and nephews, scattered all over the world and she loves telling them her stories. Her first children book," Oh Ostrich won't you help me please" was published in 2013.
