Isabelle Marinov

Isabelle Marinov (author)

When Isabelle was 9 years old, her parents gave her a red typewriter for her birthday. She started crafting stories in German and Luxembourgish, her native language, straight away, but it wasn't until her first son was born that she returned to writing full time. Isabelle writes across several genres, writing picture books, middle grade and screenplays. She speaks four languages fluently, but English is her favourite for prose. She is a member of the SCBWI and a 2017/18 Children's Literature Fellow at Stony Brook University in Southampton, NY.
