Anita Sebastian is a local writer and editor. She is a zoologist by training from the National University of Singapore (NUS) and had spent many happy years working at the Night Safari.
The Ranger Anne Series was launched at the 2015 Singapore Writers Festival and endorsed by Mr Bernard Harrison (former CEO, Wildlife Reserves Singapore). The first set of four books were published in 2015, and the rest of the eight books in 2016. Anita was featured on 938live’s Women of Worth segment where the Ranger Anne series was discussed. Anita was featured as Storyteller of the Month in the Jan/Feb edition of Gathering Books (online) by Dr Myra Garces-Bacsal (NIE).
Anita was invited to speak at a Student’s Tea at Tembusu College, NUS, and to do a storytelling session at the SEA Aquarium (RWS) for their inaugural Imagine|Native event. Recently, Anita linked up with the Children’s Cancer Foundation to do storytelling sessions for them at NUH.
Much to her delight, Anita was also invited to be a regular contributor for a children’s science magazine in Singapore. She would be writing on animals and conservation, and hopes to reach many young children this way.
