Jion Sheibani

Agent: Elinor Cooper

Jion is half-Scouse, half-Iranian and was brought up in Brighton. She studied English at Somerville College Oxford, and now lives in Paris with her Franco-Portuguese husband. Together they run a chain of English language schools for kids (www.anglofun.fr)

As a child, Jion’s idol was the schoolgirl author of The Garden Gang, Jayne Fisher. Her most treasured picture book will probably always be Where The Wild Things Are. Her favourite hobby is gawping at her 2 gorgeous children, Oscar and Stella.

Jion loves to draw and write fiction and poetry for all ages. She is currently working on her first picture book.

Her portfolio can be found on her website and her blog is at: www.jionsheibani.blogspot.fr
