About the Author

Educated at Leeds University. First job was quite quirky: I was the Letters Editor at the ancient Lady magazine. I had to personally reply to readers' household and miscellaneous queries, and print a selection of them in the mag each week. Very old-fashioned, but excellent fun. Main work has been working as a sub-editor on consumer magazines, everything from cars, to lads' gadgets, to fashion, to true life women's mags. Previous titles with Buster Books: Girls' Book of Secrets and Girls' Book of Friendship. Particular interests include: yoga, travel, music ... Katy Jackson is a freelance illustrator based in London. Over the last 9 years her studio has produced illustrations for a wide variety of clients across the industry and the world. Her work has included artwork for book covers, storyboards, picture books, commemorative plates, greetings cards, puzzles, tv programmes and editorial pieces. Katy Jackson works in a mix of media, using pencil and Photoshop. Pencil roughs are emailed to the client for approval before final artwork. The final print-ready illustrations are then sent either digitally by CD or email, or sent as original artwork.
