This amazing feat is only the beginning for the young author. This December, Destiny follows up her debut with her second book Destiny and the Troll, which takes us on a thrilling new adventure into the woods!

Youngest of three loving and talented siblings, the now six-year-old Cameroonian-British Destiny Likambi is an inspiring, confident young girl and positive role model for children globally, who dreams of inspiring other children to write with her own stories, after she became the UK’s youngest author at the age of five.

She has displayed a love of reading and writing from an early age, and even illustrates her own books in collaboration with a professional artist, giving an added element of character to her work that matches her own fun, outgoing personality. The art, story, and title of each book is chosen by Destiny herself, who is heavily involved in the creative process despite her young age, and she even has a third and forth book on the way!
