Tamsyn Murray spent her childhood moving around a lot, from Truro in Cornwall to a village called Norham in Northumberland (which is probably as far from Cornwall as it's possible to get and still be in England) and then on to the Lake District. At eighteen she left home to go to university in London and has been a Londoner ever since. When she's not working or writing, she can be found singing and dancing with her local amateur dramatics society. She is currently thirty-six and a half years old and married to the loveliest man in the world. She has one daughter. Lee Wildish became interested in illustration and art at a very young age. As soon as he graduated from the University of Nottingham he started working as a graphic designer for an advertising agency, learning the ins and outs of graphics and corporate literature. Several years later he ventured into greeting cards, where he produced illustrations and design concepts from inception through completion. Lee now loves to illustrate children's books and adds humor to his work whenever possible. He believes that there's nothing more warming than seeing people enjoying a published book that he has illustrated. Lee now lives in Nottingham, England.
