The author

Eric Geron has written over a dozen books for children, such as the #3 New York Times best seller Disney’s Descendants: The Novelization, which he wrote under pseudonym (and anagram) Rico Green. He was born and raised in Summit, New Jersey, and earned a creative writing degree from the University of Miami. He lives in Los Angeles. You can find him on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter @EricGeron.

Illustrator Mat Edwards has been drawing for as long as he can remember. Inspired by the things he sees in daily life, his style ranges from thoroughly modern to would-have-sworn-it-was-vintage. Repetition and the power of precision are key to the appeal of his art. His early inspirations include artists such as Chris Foss, Tim White, and Rodney Mathews. Based on his work at school, he won a four-year apprenticeship with Johnson Mattheys, where he learned at the feet of some tremendously skilled artists such as mapmakers and engravers. While his talent and eye for detail is a constant, his technique has evolved from using purely traditional materials such as pencils, gouache, and stretching paper to using almost all-digital methods. He lives in the UK.
