Narinder Dhami

  • 4 stars across 152 books
Narinder Dhami is a young writer who has already found a strong voice for children's fiction.  She has had two novels for a slightly older age group published by Collins, and we are looking forward to establishing her in a younger market on our list.  Her first book for Transworld, ANNIE'S GAME, was published in Corgi Yearling in April 1999:            'A terrific story' The Observer,
                   'Dhami brings a light touch to the seriousness of the issues thrown up in this novel and to its resolution' Books for Keeps
