  • 5 stars across 2 books
    When Isabelle Marinov was nine years old, her parents gave her a red  typewriter for her birthday. She started crafting stories in German and  Luxembourgish, her native language, straight away, but it wasn't until  her first son was born that she returned to writing full time. Isabelle  writes across several genres, writing picture books, middle grade and  screenplays. She speaks four languages fluently, but English is her  favourite for prose. She is a member of the SCBWI and a 2017/18  Children's Literature Fellow at Stony Brook University in Southampton,  NY. Chris Nixon is a multidisciplinary artist creating across illustration, graphic design, creative direction and public art. Based in Perth, Australia, Chris's work is inspired by the West Coast and classic surf culture with an emphasis on the handmade and crafted, using colour, texture and pattern across a wide range of media from children's books to animation, commercial illustration and large artwork installations.
