Andrea Alban

Andrea Alban’s debut novel Anya's War was inspired by her Jewish father's childhood in war-torn Shanghai, a little known passage in holocaust history.  She is also the co-creator with Lisa Burnett Bossi of nine books, greeting cards, and guided journals which draw on a love of family and nature's wonders including The Happiness Tree (a Florida Children's Book Award nominee), January's Child: A Birthday Month Book (Scholastic, January 2007), Ten Little Wishes (Harper, Spring 2007), and Celebrating Motherhood (Conari Press, 2002).


A resident of San Francisco, Alban is a dynamic speaker at schools, museums, libraries and literary festivals throughout the Bay Area and beyond. Alban serves on the faculty of Book Passage and its annual Children’s Writer Conference, and coaches writers in the craft of fiction.
