About the Author

Joyce Denham has a growing reputation as the author: she wrote several prayers in the Celtic tradition published in A Child's Book of Celtic Prayers and is the author of Stories of the Saints, also from Lion. Joyce is an American whose family roots lie in the Celtic fringes of the British Isles and she is a passionate researcher of the wisdom of the Celtic past. Amanda Hall is an award-winning illustrator, particularly renowned for her wonderfully decorative and colourful children's book illustrations. She excels at capturing the visual worlds of different cultures, their peoples, animals and landscapes as well as their spiritual traditions. Amanda exhibits her original illustrations at Chris Beetles Gallery St James's, London.

Joyce Denham is an experienced author of several books for children and adults, taking her inspiration from Celtic Christianity and the lives of the saints. Her lyrical style sings through in stories. Having had a career in teaching, Joyce now lives in Minneapolis and is the Associate Minister in Adult Education and Formation at her church. Amanda Hall is an award-winning international illustrator, noted for her stylish illustrations of folk tales and legends. With a lush and decorative style which demonstrates a love of colour, her children's books are often mythical and timeless. Amanda studied Graphic Art at what is now the Anglia Polytechnic University in Cambridge. Having travelled Amanda finds herself drawn to illustrating ethnic tales and legends in a style that uses watercolours and crayon to build layers of colour and texture.
