    Ever since she was a very little girl, Anna Howard has spent her summer holidays in Pembrokeshire. Together with her brother and sister, she is the proud owner of a heavenly, three acre meadow on the cliff top above Druidston Haven, where she and her family love to camp. When she is not in Wales, Anna is an English and French teacher and really enjoys her job. She lives in rural Northamptonshire with her husband, four children, a hairy pony, an extremely naughty terrier, several chickens and two hives - full of bees. Anna has always loved writing stories and the story of 'The Glass Tear' was first written as a Christmas present for her children and all her nieces and nephews. It is set on the very beach that she and her family love so much. Fran Evans lives in Llangwm in South Pembrokeshire and is a well known artist in the county and beyond, working for clients such as Two Bad Mice Cards as well as illustrating books by Cerys Mathews and Malachy Doyle. An experienced illustrator of books, cards and prints, Fran draws instinctively on her observation of the natural world, and her love of interesting and quirky things, to create her delicate images. As someone who enjoys exploring the beaches around her home with the family, she often draws on her own environment for inspiration.
