Jack Brand lives in Sydney's Inner West with his partner, Sarah, and two children. He is currently a high school teacher librarian. Before that he was an English teacher, before that a lawyer, and before that a police officer. There were a few less glamorous occupations as well. Jack wrote his first novel while living on an island and caring for his two young children. The novel turned out to be terrible, but he can at least say that the kids turned out all right. Freddy Tangles: Champ or Chicken is the second novel in the Freddy Tangles series.Tom Jellett has illustrated a number of books for children including the junior fiction series Ted Goes Wild by Michael Wagner, the CBC Notable Picture Book Whale in the Bath by Kylie Westaway, and the extraordinarily successful My Dad Thinks He's Funny by Katrina Germein.
