Sarah Sheppard has written and illustrated over twenty books and drawn the pictures for many more. She is also represented in many anthologies. She began her career as an Art Director and Graphic Designer. After studying palaeontology at the University of Stockholm, she combined her profession with her passion for dinosaurs to create the hugely popular and critically-acclaimed book Lots of Dinosaurs, published in 2008. Since then she has written and illustrated many non-fiction books for children, weaving together facts and fantasy in an innovative mix of text, illustrations and comic strips.
Fascinated as much by the present as by the past, by maps, sharks and other living species, Sarah Sheppard thoroughly researches her books to turn up information the reader has probably not come across before.
