Juliet Williams - Writer
Juliet lives on 10 acres with two children, one husband and two spotty horses, a mad dog and a mad pup, five chooks and a very spoilt ginger cat called Bobcat (poor Ladybird died). She loves eating anything her mum cooks, chocolate and eggs (not together though, unless they are chocolate eggs). Her favourite things to do include: thinking of stories to write, riding her super horse Rosie, drinking cups of tea and reading a book that is so good her tea goes cold.
Luisa Gioffre-Suzuki - Missing Pinky Illustrator
Luisa lives on the Surf Coast of Victoria, after many years living and working in Japan. A member of SCBWI, Luisa has illustrated several books including Willard the Dragon and Camp Dragonfire (4RV Publishing), all the while in search of the ultimate cup of coffee. When she isn’t doing those things, she’s teaching kids to create their own masterpieces and is prone to episodes of daydreaming. Her work is showcased on The Style File and Illustrators Australia.
Elizabeth Botté - Giggle Gum Tree Illustrator
Elizabeth is a painter and illustrator based in Melbourne. She works long hours in a lofty studio, but spends far too much time gazing out her window at the birds and trees. She has illustrated many children's books over the years. Inspiration for the Giggle Gum Tree illustrations came from the lovely style and images of books she read as a child in the 1970's.
