About The Author


Anna Svetchnikov is an award-winning author of children’s emotions and feelings in the magical, mythical and particularly human worlds.

Additionally, she is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, a model, has yet to miss a free-throw, appeared in numerous movies, and the founder & executive director of two non-profit organizations - Positive Parenting Initiative and Longwood Care, Inc.

She resides in sunny Port St. Lucie, FL and does her best writing every minute, awake or otherwise, notepad not required as she never forgets. Anything. And reminds her husband (of 10 years, together for 20) of this skill regularly.

Anna has published more than 40 books for children and their parents. She is the recipient of numerous awards including, Mom’s Choice Awards, Pinnacle Book Achievement Award, Book of the Year by Stevie’s Awards, Royal Dragonfly Book Award, Reader’s Favorite, and the National Indie Excellence Award.


"The more I live, the more I recognize that teaching moments in my youth, especially provided by my parents, have shaped my life and made me who I am. It is impossible to overestimate the influence of parents who understand the hearts of their children." - Anna Svetchnikov
