Doctor Rod Kelly - Author
I'm a former child, and current adult. I work as a paediatrician in the neonatal retrieval service. In between looking after babies in the back of ambulances, I try and think of kids’ book ideas to distract myself from getting travel sick.
I blog at: www.delayingtheinevitablebooks and tweet @rodkelly50
Rod's previous book, "Why Worry William Wasp" was also illustrated by Emma Latham.
Emma Latham - Illustrator
Her style consists of textures and found objects which are jiggled and pieced together to create atmospheric and enticing imagery. She has two main styles; the first is collage based and is tailored specifically towards the children’s book market. The characters that live within the pages of these stories are often deeply influenced by people, animals and childhood memories. The second is 3D collage where extreme light and dark are used to convey layers of themes and messages.
