She published her first book when she was only eight years old. It created history as Anaya Willabus became the first child in the United States to write and publish a chapter book at that age. She has published four books to date. They are ‘The Day Mohan found his Confidence; A Bully’s Disguise; Checo and the Homework Passes and Make it Happen-Anaya Willabus.’ Anaya believes in the magic and the beauty of turning the page, and judging from these titles, she will be writing many more books in the future.
