Annabel Crabb is a South Australian-born writer and television presenter who as a university student paid full price for Cosmo Cosmolino in 1992, breaking a solid habit of waiting for new books to arrive at the library. She completed a law degree but never became a lawyer. Annabel has been a journalist for 25 years, much of it as a political reporter, columnist and commentator. She created the ABC series Kitchen Cabinet, as well as The House With Annabel Crabb, both of which are occupied with Australian federal politics. She has written a number of books, including the Walkley-winning Stop At Nothing:The Life And Adventures of Malcolm Turnbull, and The Wife Drought. With ABC colleague and fellow Garner devotee Leigh Sales, Annabel hosts the popular podcast Chat 10, Looks 3.
