About the Author
Mrs Shepherd has been drawing and making up stories for as long as she can remember. Mrs Shepherd's writing style comes from her experiences with mental health and how this affects moods, the way she takes on quirks, and views the world. She finds inspiration for her illustrative style in the people around her, the weird, wonderful folk she meets on her travels, and of course, from her own imagination.
