Jennifer Bain has been writing stories since she was very small. She was the new kid at six different schools in three different countries growing up, and Jennifer feels she was just as awkward as Barry. Jennifer has always wanted to write picture books to help children feel comfortable in the world, but she got distracted by becoming an accountant, a mum, and then a primary school teacher. She now lives on the Central Coast NSW and finally has the time to follow her dream of creating positive stories to help children navigate the world with a sense of humour. Deb Brown grew up in a small country town in NSW, spending her days at the beach or camping out with her family. She has always relished time outdoors where she can draw and allow her imagination to run wild.
Now a semi-retired graphic designer, book designer and web designer, Deb has worked on many award-winning picture books over the years she has worked at various publishing companies. Deb says that telling stories through her paintings still gives her the biggest thrill and will always be her happy place. She now lives with her husband and three dogs in a small country town near a beach.
