Children's author Abiola Bello, wrote her debut novel ‘Emily Knight I AM' at the age of 12!
The book was independently published via Trafford Publishing and is the first book in a planned series, with book 2 in the pipeline.
Abiola is one of the few authors to self publish a book and then sign to a literary agent and she'll be telling us all about that journey is our chat today.
She also co-founded The Author School with Helen Lewis, a previous guest on this show.
