Stella Fry is a writer and full-time mother who says that writing is like gardening: "I start off with something tiny, and after a while, given the right conditions, some of these specks grow bigger. As any gardener knows, there's a lot of weeding along the way." She lives in Kent with her partner and two children. Shelia Moxley is an illustrator who trained at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. She has painted many children's books and is also known for her greeting cards.
