When not immersed in books, Josephine Collins enjoys ballet dancing, baking, and singing with her boys (husband and son). She loves her work as a children's book editor and writer. Jill has been working as an illustrator since graduating from the University of Brighton in 1997. However, she has always been an illustrator at heart, sketching and doodling at any given chance! She lives in West Sussex with her husband and two daughters, two cats and two large mountain dogs!
