Andrea Torrey Balsara

Meet Andrea Torrey Balsara, who is an award-winning children’s and young adult author/illustrator and motivational speaker. Her passion is to empower children to think for themselves, to learn about the power and beauty of our diverse human family, and to walk the “Hero’s Journey” in real life. Having struggled with mental wellness as a youth, she seeks to empower young people of all life experiences and diverse backgrounds through her writing, art, and presentations. She lives in an old Victorian manor house with her husband and fur-family, where she can often be found in her cold attic of a work room, pretending to be the heroine from Jane Eyre as she writes and draws with frozen fingers.
