Evelyn Bookless grew up on a farm in the west of Ireland. She is a nature lover, mum, teacher and writer. Her first-time diving was at The Great Barrier Reef. It blew her mind (but thankfully she made a full recovery!) She learned to dive properly in the Atlantic Ocean one winter. She saw an octopus and was very happy even though it was very cold. Evelyn has lived in Hong Kong and Singapore for the past 10 years and loves Asia. Her favourite place to be is in the ocean, preferably somewhere warm, as she's not as tough as she used to be. She dreams about clean oceans and contented sea creatures.
Being obsessed with wildlife from a young age, Danny Deeptown found his love of drawing through hours of copying scientific illustrations from books of animals and dinosaurs. His artistic talent later led him to study Illustration in South Wales, UK. It was here he found a love for classic book illustration and the use of pen and ink. Today, Danny creates art for children and adults alike. He has illustrated numerous books that mostly involve characterised animals. When not in his studio, Danny likes to spend his time adventuring and seeking out new places in nature that are relatively remote. He is happiest in a secret place surrounded by trees with passing water.
