Author's Bio

Richard Fairgray (Author) is a NZ writer and illustrator who works on comics, picture books and screenplays. He has been publishing work since he was seven years old, and has more than 200 titles to his name. A former teacher and stand-up comedian, and a self-confessed workaholic, Richard's deep-seated fear that he may be a fictional character only serves to drive him harder. He insists that if he doesn't get enough done he'll have to come back as a ghost to finish off. Welsh-born Terry Jones (Illustrator) has written magazine articles, text books, two YA novels and numerous comics as well a slew of unfinished sci-fi and thriller manuscripts. Since retiring early from teaching to write full time, he has produced everything from children's books to screenplays, plus at least one graphic novel a year. Terry immerses himself in digital media and is never more alive than when critiquing Silver Age Superboy stories or linking Twilight Zone episodes to sure signs of a crumbling society. He lives in Auckland.
