About the author

Karen Tayleur was born in the western suburbs of Melbourne and moved to the eastern suburbs in her tweens. Reading was something she learned to do before she started school and it has helped shape the person she is today. She has had a variety of jobs including present wrapper, bank teller and ward assistant in a nursing home. She was a publisher at the age of 20 for the short story magazine Brave New Word and thinks nothing can replace the rush of writing except maybe reading a really good story. She is currently the Editorial Manager at The Five Mile Press and has had over 40 books published for children and young adults.

About the illustrator

Heath McKenzie is a Melbourne-based artist who has worked with many publishers and production companies. Heath is generally inspired by too much television, too many movies and music (lots of music). He is specifically inspired by movie posters, 50s and 60s commercial art, Japanese signs and cartoons (anything animated, really).
