Shamini Flint lives in Singapore with her husband and two children. She began her career in law in Malaysia and also worked at an international law firm in Singapore. She travelled extensively around Asia for her work, before resigning to be a stay-at-home mum, writer, part-time lecturer and environmental activist, all in an effort to make up for her 'evil' past as a corporate lawyer! Shamini has written many books for adults and children, including the popular Diary of a Soccer Star series. Sally Heinrich is a freelance illustrator who has illustrated more than twenty books, as well as working for advertising agencies, design studios and government departments. Sally has lived in Singapore, Sydney and Darwin and is now living in Adelaide.
