Coralie is the top secret mermaid name of children’s author Amy Sparkes. She spent all of her childhood in Eastbourne in East Sussex, with the sea at the end of her road. She now lives in Devon with her husband, five young children and a sock goblin called Arthur. She loves writing about magical things and secret places. In her spare time, she enjoys dancing, tree-climbing and making cakes. She has yet to master doing all three at the same time.
Susie grew up in Devon, and loves to be near or in trees, fields, rivers and oceans. She always wanted to be a mermaid but drawing a book full of them is the next best thing. She lives with her husband and two highly entertaining and soppy cats, and works part-time in her local library. She draws in the garden when it is warm, and in the attic when it is cold. She loves a good cup of tea, and cannot resist biscuits.
