Children's author and illustrator Hazel Mitchell is originally from England - now she lives and works in Maine. Her childhood was spent in a seaside town in Yorkshire. She can't remember a time when she wasn't drawing, and still can't be left reliably alone with a pencil. When she wasn't drawing, she was riding horses or rambling along the beautiful Yorkshire coast. After attending art college in the UK, she spent several years in the Royal Navy and then worked as a graphic designer. Now she's doing what she always dreamed of - creating books for children. Her books include Imani's Moon, One Word Pearl, Where do Fairies Go When It Snows?, Kenya's Art, 1,2,3 by the Sea and Toby. Her work has been recognized by Bank Street's Best of Children's Books, Reading is Fundamental, Society of Illustrator's of Los Angeles, Foreword Reviews, Learning Magazine and Maine Libraries 'Cream of the Crop'. She is represented by Ginger Knowlton, Curtis Brown, NYC.
