Annika Barranti Klein wrote her first novel, The Old Well In The Creek, at age five. She made her first movie, Untitled Annalee and Margarita Story, the following year. She suspects she may have peaked early.
She has been writing professionally on the internet since 2005, at various sites (many of which no longer exist) including Creature Corner, Noneuclidean Cafe, Blogging LA, The Establishment, Paste TV, and The Toast. These days you can find her at Book Riot.
She also writes short fiction, poetry, and is working on a novel.
Annika also makes photographs. Her father, photographer Lou Barranti, bought her first camera when she was five years old.
Annika lives in Los Angeles, where she has worked as a nanny, an assistant pastry chef at a catering company, a knitwear designer and knitting teacher, a reader for a film production company, a dog sitter, and a women's banked track roller derby referee. She is currently a full time mom and part time copy editor.
She is always very tired.
