Mary Grice was born near historic Stonehenge. With Mum, Annie, having compiled educational books with Beatrix Potter's publishers, perhaps children's writing was inevitable for her. She started her career in television production, once busking with Only Fools and Horses' Uncle Albert for charity! She enjoys travel and diving, but mostly spending time with her son, TJ.

Mary worked with illustrator Daniel in Hong Kong. After receiving a hand painted Christmas card from him, she knew he could bring Snuffles to life. Daniel believes in the power of imagination and visualisation, from watercolour painting to digital sketching, in his visual storytelling.
