About, briefly.

Ella Frances Sanders is a writer out of necessity and an illustrator by accident. She currently lives and works in the city of Bath, UK, without a cat.

Her first book, 'Lost in Translation: An Illustrated Compendium of Untranslatable Words' was published in September 2014 (by the Crown Publishing/Penguin Random House imprint Ten Speed Press) and is an international and New York Times bestseller, and her second book 'The Illustrated Book of Sayings: Curious Expressions from Around the World', was published in September 2016.

If you're interested in working with me on a project, wondering about commissions, or would just like to be in touch, send an email or fill out this form here. You could also drop a line to my literary agent, Jennifer Weltz, who works at JVLNA in the magical window city of New York. She just loves getting emails about me, especially about permissions and intellectual property rights.
