She lives in Boston, USA, with her husband, three children and Golden Retriever. She blogs on parenting, education and children's books at and runs the nonprofit Multicultural Children's Book Day. Robert Sae-Heng is an illustrator and artist living in London, UK, with his fantastically large cheese plant, Elvis. He has Mexican and Thai origins, and spent his childhood on a tiny farm in Mexico.
