Neridah McMullin grew up surrounded by animals, with a thousand acres to run around in. Her grandfather was a stockman and he bred, trained and raced his own racehorses. As a farm child, she studied science at university and worked as a scientist in Research and Development in the Dairy and Confectionery industry for 16 years. Her dream job took her all over the world. Neridah is the author of seven books for children and loves history and true stories. Her picture book Fabish: the horse that braved a Bushfire was shortlisted for the CBCA Eve Pownall Information 'Book of the Year' in 2017. She loves reading until late, sleeping in, walking her dog and meeting other people's dogs. Sarah Anthony is a painter and metalsmith. She completed six years of art study in the UK, culminating in a BA Joint Honours in Fine Arts and Metalsmithing from Camberwell College of the Arts in London, in 1994. In 2009 she graduated from La Trobe University with a Masters in Art Therapy. Her early artworks were small metal sculptural pieces and contemporary jewellery; these were exhibited in Dublin, London, Auckland, Melbourne and Sydney. After a substantial break from art-making due to raising her young family, she has recently returned to artmaking and exploring the medium of oil painting. Drover is her first picture book.
