Following a career in business centred around London, Trevor now spends his time writing and supporting the performing arts. Marzena is a creative artist and filmmaker. The character of Ed developed from an original idea of Marzena's based upon her childhood experience as a taller child than most. Their collaboration sees Trevor providing the narrative complementing Marzena's imagination, ensuring readers of any age can take learning and positivity from Ed and his adventures. They hope Ed brings joy to his readers, showing that being different should be an opportunity for empowerment and the realisation of dreams that may not always be obvious to everybody.
