Catherine Jacob lives in a very old, very noisy house in York where she tries to squeeze in as much story writing time as possible, in between looking after her three lovely (ever so slightly mischievous) children and occasionally appearing on TV reporting the news. She also loves singing, playing netball and hide and seek, drawing, and writing in rhyme while drinking mugs of steaming hot tea. (Not all at the same time!) Ag Jatkowska dreamed of being an artist from a very young age and graduated from the University of Fine Arts in Gdansk, Poland with a MA in Graphic Design and Illustration. Ag now lives in Bath and works as a full-time illustrator. In her spare time she loves practising yoga, discovering new places and taking long walks with her husband.
