PAMELA BUTCHART

As a child, Pamela was lucky enough to grow up in a house full of pets and go to a primary school where lots of spooky and weird things happened (well, in her imagination at least). As a student, Pamela's student jobs included: fishwife, teaching basketball in America, phlebotomist and Artist Liaison for a (really bad) Abba tribute band. Now, when she's not writing or going out and about meeting readers, Pamela teaches philosophy to teenagers.

Her top selling stories include The Spy Who Loved School Dinners which won the Blue Peter Best Story Award and My Head Teacher is a Vampire Rat which won The Children's Book Award.

Pamela lives in Dundee with her son and their two awesome cats, Bear and Carlos. If she wasn't working as a writer and a teacher she'd like to open a luxury hotel for stray cats.


KATE HINDLEY

Children's books illustrator Kate Hindley lives and works in Birmingham (near the chocolate factory). She studied illustration at Falmouth College of Art, graduating in 2008, and went on to work for two years as a children's print designer at a studio in Northampton, whilst working freelance on children's books and greetings cards.

Kate's first picture book THE GREAT SNORTLE HUNT, written by Claire Freedman, was longlisted for the 2013 Kate Greenaway Medal.
