About the Author


Deanna Bussadori grew up in Cape Town, South Africa, living an active and outdoor life under the African sun. As the youngest of three siblings, she was immersed in both Greek and South African traditions, family gatherings, and delicious traditional foods.


Deanna started writing in verse many years ago while simultaneously studying the interaction of her children. She wrote down those experiences and forged them into themes for her books. This ultimately developed into a ten-book series, with the lead title being Super Big Brother: Finding Your Hero.


Over the years, Deanna’s interest to explore settled her in three more countries: England, Canada, and the USA. Her spouse is Italian (just to add to the cultural mix within her family) and their two children, a son (Giuliano, aka Super Sam) and daughter (Olivia, aka Lulu the Little), were born in England.

Now living in the USA, she explores the children’s world of imagination and learning, while writing children’s books continues to be her passion.
