A F Steadman

Recent alumna Annabel Steadman has won a record-breaking deal for a series of children’s books. Reports say that a fierce bidding war led to a sum in seven figures for the novels, with film rights going for a similarly high valuation.

Ms Steadman, who is now 28, studied law at Selwyn. More recently, she also took an MSt course at the college in creative writing. You can read more about her books – and why unicorns aren’t as nice as you might think – in this story in the Guardian.
