Sheena Dempsey and Swapna Haddow

Swapna Haddow lives in London with her karate-chopping, swashbuckling son (his words not hers), her  husband and their dog, Archie. She spends her time writing, reading and making sure her son doesn't flatten her husband as he attempts to master his human cannonball trick. Sometimes she does all three at the same time.


Sheena Dempsey is a children's author and illustrator. She loves to draw all kinds of animals, from dirty rats to mean cats and heroic pigeons too. She has worked with various publishers in Ireland and the UK including Walker Books, Hachette, Faber and Andersen Press. She lives in London with her partner, Mick, and their bold greyhound, Sandy.
