Indigo Haynes is a teen writer and artist with a special interest in manga and anime. After a long spell of home schooling, she’s back in school this year and has published a comic guide to secondary school life. Find it here on Amazon UK.
When she was only 7 years old, Indigo was the youngest winner of ‘The Tick-Tock Box’, a national short story competition at The Guardian newspaper judged by Francesca Simon, author of the Horrid Henry books.
Ever since then, she’s wanted to be a writer, and has even self-published a few stories for younger children!
Indigo is also passionate about politics. In fact, she’s the Deputy Member of Youth Parliament for the constituency of Torridge, North and West Devon (2017-2019), where she’s campaigning to lower the voting age to 16.
Here’s her take on Youth Parliament.
