Annika Dunklee
Author
Annika Dunklee
Annika Dunklee was born in Uppsala, Sweden, to a Scottish father and a Swedish mother. As such, she enjoyed the influences of Basil Fawlty and Pippi Longstocking, while eating haggis and pickled herring sandwiches.
Her debut book, My Name Is Elizabeth!, was originally a class assignment in Ted Staunton’s Writing for Children’s course, through George Brown College.
She bases a lot of her stories on her own childhood memories. On the first day of school, every teacher would mispronounce Annika’s name as Ann-eeka, making her cringe inside and forever fret the first day of school. My Name Is Elizabeth! was inspired by anyone who dislikes having his or her name shortened, lengthened, mispronounced or mangled in some way.
Annika has retained certain characteristics since childhood, which include being an excruciatingly slow reader and having laughing hysterics in the most inappropriate situations.
She currently resides in Toronto with her husband, two kids, a cat and a hamster.
