About the Author

Christopher MacGregor (Author) When Army Officer Christopher MacGregor returned from Iraq in 2007, he began writing to help not only his own two children, but the children of others. Having commanded over 100 soldiers (with over 50 children between them) he noticed the beneficial effect of saying proper goodbyes and preparing families for Daddy's absence - his first book, My Daddy's Going Away is the heartwarming, helpful, and comforting response. Emma Yarlett (Illustrator) Emma Yarlett likes to paint, draw, collage, design, write, doodle, construct, invent, splatter and sketch. In 2011 she graduated with first class honours in Illustration from University College Falmouth and began her career as a illustrator and author.
