Steve Smallman has taken up writing his own stories after illustrating children's books for over 30 years. He also teaches illustration and mural-painting workshops in schools. When he's not working, Steve enjoys films, television, gardening and walking in the countryside. Highly commended in the Macmillan prize 2011, Emma began her career as an author and illustrator whilst still studying Illustration at Falmouth University. She now paints, draws, collages, designs, doodles, splatters and sketches for a living from her studio at home in Falmouth, near Truro and loves every minute of it! In her spare time Emma loves to eat Jaffa Cakes, craves pets and suppresses a desire to spend her entire income on colouring pencils.
