About Mary Joslin

Mary Joslin is the pseudonym of an in-house author. Christina Balit is a graduate of the Royal College of Art. Of British and Armenian descent, Christina spent her childhood in the Middle East - the very landscapes where so many of the Bible's tales are set - which became a large influence on her illustrations. An acclaimed children's book artist, she has received widespread praise for her children's books, which are mainly mythology, Biblical stories, or retellings of traditional myths or stories.
