About the Author & Illustrator

Fiona Wall Minami is the author of several books, including In The Driver’s Seat. She combines writing with running her language school, Britz, and teaching at Kumamoto University. Her interest in escape rooms has taken her to a school for wizards in Korea, an underground war bunker in Austria, and an Aztec gold mine in the north of England.

Michi Mathias enjoys using illustration to make complicated things clear and creating observational comics to convey random aspects of real life. After a distant past of trying to draw "properly," her work has now veered toward a somewhat wonky style, using old-fashioned ink and watercolour on paper.
