    DAWN CASEY draws inspiration from her travels near and far, from tales of old, and from the natural world. She has a particular specialism in the retelling of folktales. Her collection The Barefoot Book of Earth Tales won a Golden Nautilus Award and received an accolade from the American Folklore Society. In previous incarnations, Dawn worked in publishing and as a primary school teacher. Now she retells folktales and writes original stories and picturebook texts for a range of educational and trade publishers. She lives in Sussex, England.

    Oamul Lu is an illustrator and animator who was born-and still lives today-in China. His art depicts the world he sees, hears, and experiences in daily life, and he hopes that people will be inspired to live their own wonderful life by his artwork. Held in Love is his first picture book.
