About the Author & Illustrator:
Joanne L.S. Risso was born and raised in Gippsland, Australia. Her mother used to read the story of Silver Moon to her when she was a little girl. She believes that princes, princesses, and palaces; maidens, mermaids, and magic; dragons, fairies, witches and castles should all be kept alive through stories and play. She lives with her husband and four children in Central Pennsylvania, where they often search for fairies in their garden, put on family plays with vampire-mermaids and pirates, and have sword fights in their tree-fort.
Christiane Künzel was born in 1978 in Osnabrück, Germany. Having a great love for stories, she started illustrating them early on. She then began turning her passion into her work by studying arts and English at the University of Osnabrück. She currently teaches children from age 10 to 18 at a German ‘Gymnasium’ in Arts, English and Dance. She lives in Hamburg with her two children and her husband, who enjoy seeing the stories they read turn into vivid images.
