Georgie Donaghey discovered her love for creative writing at the age of seven. Now a lot older and wiser, her first picture book, Lulu was published in 2015 through Dragon Tales Publishing and re-released through Wombat Books in 2017. Her second picture book, Clover's Big Ideas was released in 2017 through Little Pink Dog Books. Lulu and Clover’s Big Ideas are both featured on Kinderling Kids Radio. Young travelers through both the Virgin and Qantas inflight entertainment channels can also enjoy Lulu. In 2013 Georgie was shortlisted for the Picture Books Preschool and Chapter Book for Older Reader Categories in the CYA Competition. Her involvement with the children's writing industry is extensive as a past President of the CBCA Sutherland branch and founder of Creative Kids Tales; an industry recognized website dedicated to assisting Australian emerging children's authors. In the Shadow of an Elephant is Georgie’s second book with Little Pink Dog Books.
Sandra Severgnini owned an art gallery and retail store before finally deciding it was well and truly time to nurture her lifetime passion and focus on children’s picture books. Her fascination with the magical natural world around her inspires her words and brings sensitivity and humour to her illustrations.
