Booki Vivat is the New York Times bestselling author-illustrator of the FRAZZLED series. She has been doodling somewhat seriously since 2011 and not-so-seriously since childhood. She grew up in Southern California and graduated from the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). Before FRAZZLED, she taught middle school English abroad, fell off a ladder during a very brief stint as a bookseller, and worked in children’s publishing. She currently lives in Brooklyn, New York. You can follow her on Instagram at @bookibookibooki and on Twitter at @thebookiv.
