Annika Crum grew up smuggling books under her desk so she could read during class. In 2022 she won a National Silver Medal with Distinction from Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, as well as gold and silver key awards for best in her region. Her short story Forbidden Numbers is published in Best Teen Writing 2022. When she’s not writing uplifting novels for teens, you can find her mapping fantasy worlds with A.C. Cartography or learning career skills from the Author Conservatory.
Books taught me to ride dragons and taste magic, and I fell in love with storytelling. I dream of writing stories for all my life.
Worldbuilding is one of my passions, and I love creating fantasy maps! See below for details about my cartography business!
Exploring fantasy worlds one book at a time, I am in a constant pursuit of wonder. I started writing seriously eight years ago.
"For authors in search of a mapmaker, I highly recommend AC Cartography. Annika is a joy to work with given her attention to detail, quick turnaround of revisions, and overall focus on meeting her clients’ individual cartography needs."
~ Karen Grunst, author of Sacred Fire
