Originally from a small town near Leeds, Hannah moved the long long way down to Falmouth, Cornwall to study illustration by the sea. After graduating in 2013, she now still lives and and continues to illustrate there. Bold colours, playful compositions inspire Hannah. My First Christmas Advent is Hannah's first book for Bloomsbury.
Ivy Snow has loved children's books since before she was able to walk! After living in the fast-paced city she moved to the lovely countryside so she could focus on becoming the author she always wanted to be. A Christmas Advent Story is her first children's book and she is thrilled to have found a home at Bloomsbury. Ivy now lives in Hertfordshire with her husband and her little boy who might love picture books even more than she does!
