Rebecca Emberley is the author and illustrator of numerous books for children, including a bestselling bi-lingual series. She comes from a family of artists, including her father Ed Emberley, her brother Michael Emberley, and sister in law Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick, all children's book illustrators and her daughter Adrian Emberley and husband Peter Black, both singer-songwriters. Sometimes they work on projects together. With all this creative energy surrounding her, Rebecca is kept very busy. When not creating more books for children she also does some graphic design, dabbles in everything from silk screening to music production, travels, and looks for opportunities to work with her family. She currently lives in Maine with her husband, but will soon be traveling for a while, observing, writing and looking for new and exciting ideas.
