Larry Hayes helps run an investment fund, and is a trustee for a homeless charity. On Fridays he homeschools his two kids, letting them decide what to study. In the future he hopes to become a treasure hunter, invent a yoghurt that makes you happy, and solve the maths behind the human brain. How to Survive Without Grown-Ups is his debut novel.
Katie Abey is an illustrator who lives in a teeny hobbit-like house in Derbyshire with a cat, a hedgehog, a small human and a rainbow-haired husband. Her work often features sarcastic-looking animals, and she likes using a lot of colour: she is allergic to Magnolia. Katie's ideas and strange sense of humour perfectly suit the field of children's books. She also creates stationery, greeting cards and clothing, which she sells on her website and in the two highstreet shops she and her partner own. When Katie is not drawing awkward cats and llamas, she enjoys tarot cards, walks and referring to herself in the third person.
