Zanib Mian fell in love with writing at primary school. After studying molecular cell biology at University College London, she taught science in secondary school before deciding to move into children’s publishing. She felt that diverse characters from all minorities and backgrounds weren’t being fully represented in books for young children.
She launched Sweet Apple Publishers with a clear commitment to publishing inclusive books, many of which she has authored herself. Zanib also launched Muslim Children's Books where she publishes Islamic children's books that truly speak to Muslim children of today and help nurture a love for Allah in a fun and informative way.
