Juliana Foster worked as a non-fiction editor for Headline Book Publishing before becoming a freelance editor and proofreader. She is also the author of three non-fiction books - The Girls' Book (Michael O'Mara), The Christmas Book (Michael O'Mara) and Moan About Men (Headline). She lives in Kent. I'm equally happy writing about Greek myths, scientific theory, cape buffalo, zombies, the Babylonians, or how to plait a pony's mane. I've just started writing fiction, too (due to be published in 2010), and I've also written a few books for adults. I worked as an editor for many years, specialising in children's non-fiction (including the Horrible Histories series) before I started writing my own books. I live in Bath with my partner and our three-year-old son. Katy Jackson is a freelance illustrator based in London.
