Nizrana Farook on how to keep a diary

Nizrana Farook is the author of The Girl Who Stole an Elephant, about the adventures of an impetuous girl who just can't help stealing an elephant. Like us, she has been keeping a record of this historic moment. Nizrana says:

Even though the days can be quite similar, there is always something new to say. When you write in your diary, can you think of what you enjoy doing most in your day?

Nizrana was born and raised in Colombo, Sri Lanka, and the beautiful landscapes of her home country find their way into the stories she writes. She has a master’s degree in writing for young people, and lives in Hertfordshire with her husband and two daughters.
