Claudine Carmel grew up on the south coast of England and now lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. She is an author and illustrator and is never happier than when she has had a full day of creating imaginative stories. Her books have received starred reviews, award nominations, and “best of” honors. Her education has always had a basis in visual storytelling that included photography, multimedia studies, film production, and screenwriting. When she isn’t dreaming up colorful worlds, she can usually be found beside her cheerful Boston terrier on long coastal walks.
