Anna Böhm was born in Berlin, where she still lives with her family. She worked in theatre, studied screenwriting and has since worked as an author. She has written numerous radio plays and children's stories for Deutschlandradio Kultur. The "Emmi & Einschwein" series is Anna Böhm's successful children's book debut with Oetinger. With the turbulent "Animal Police" she now once again shows her flair for linguistic wit, original characters and exciting stories.
