Sumana Seeboruth

Agent: Lorna Hemingway

Debut author Sumana Seeboruth lives in London with her husband and two young children. She works in the City and writes children’s book inspired by the natural world and her children. Her fondest memories of her own childhood are the annual trips to India where she would pull drinking water from the well, swim in the pond filled with water-snakes, and stay up all night listening to her grandparents share folk stories and ghost-stories.

It is no wonder that she is still a night-owl; Sumana is most likely to be found writing when her husband and children are fast asleep.

She loves music, a noisy, happy house … and anything vintage - she can regularly be found scouting through antique shops looking for old, threadbare books that need a new home and some TLC!

Her first two board books in the Barefoot Books' Toddler Time series published in February 2022! Her latest two, Too Green! and By Myself!, were published in August 2023.
