Elizabeth DaleElizabeth Dale always dreamed of being a writer, but somehow got sidetracked into studying for a physics degree. When her children were born, she returned to her dream and found she loved writing children’s books more than anything. She loves traveling and seeking inspiration for her stories. Having seen what a wonderful life she leads, two of her daughters have grown up to be children’s authors, too. Elizabeth Dale lives in West Sussex, England.
Paula Metcalf has written and illustrated many children’s books, and she’s been doing so for a very long time. (Her parents still own an early original illustrated poem, the short but pithy “Pin in Tin,” penned at age four.) She went on to study illustration at the Cambridge School of Art in England, where she is currently a visiting lecturer in the master’s program in children’s book illustration. Paula Metcalf lives in Cambridge, England.
