When Tea Orsi was little, she dreamed of becoming a writer and spent her days reading and illustrating fairy tales or short comic stories featuring Mickey Mouse and friends. Her dream grew stronger each day, so she did her best to make it come true. Today, Tea has written several comics, articles, picture books and animation scripts. She lives in Italy with her husband, Matteo, two smart princesses named Matilde and Adelaide, and a couple of funny poodles. Like Belle, she loves reading, traveling, and exploring the world to find inspiration for exciting new stories.
