Maggie is a counsellor, family-dispute mediator, writer and artist who spends her weekends covered in paint and scribbling lists that are never completed. She is a famously mad aunt, nanna and mother who talks to herself out loud and falls over a lot in the garden at her house in northern New South Wales. Maggie writes stories with heart and soul for children and adults that encourage kindness, hope and resilience. Felicita is a self-taught illustrator. She graduated in Philosophy from the University of Western Australia. She has worked on several animation projects along with her husband, Gianluca, but her passion is making picture books. She lives in Rome with Gianluca and their daughter, Nina.
