Susannah Chambers is an editor and publisher of children's books at Allen & Unwin. She lives in Melbourne with her family. Tamsin Ainslie was born and educated in the UK and moved to Australia in 1994. She started drawing at an early age, making books and keeping illustrated journals. Working from her home-based studio in northern NSW, on a farm which she shares with her partner, two daughters, two dogs, several sheep, many chickens and one very cheeky horse, Tamsin spends most of her time illustrating children's books, drawing, painting and printmaking, and still makes tiny handmade books filled with drawings from life.
