Heather Gallagher is a writer whose work has appeared in The Age, The Melbourne Times, and Leader newspapers. She has an obsession with the quirky things in life and loves to write about them. She is especially fond of weird animal stories. Heather lives by the sea with her husband, two daughters and a dog called Pip.
Anil Tortop was born and raised in Turkey. She moved to Australia in early 2011 and has been trying to get used to the local eight-legged house intruders and slithering visitors to her garden ever since. Anil also works as an animator and character/concept designer, but has been called away from this affair as her relationship with children’s books becomes more serious. Nowadays, she lives in Ipswich with her husband. In their small home studio –a.k.a Tadaa Headquarters–, they’re illustrating, designing and playing "booksmithing".
