Author description

Jol looks like a foal. Kate looks like a plate. Despite this, they have successfully collaborated on several children's titles, two screenplays, numerous shopping lists and even an episode of Two and a Half Men. For bread and butter they write ads - occasionally even ads for bread and butter. Gypsies to the core, they have lived in Sydney, San Francisco and Venice Beach. They now call Redfern home, where they live with their son Arlo, who looks like a marshmallow. Jon looks like a Won Ton. But don't hold that against him. He's very good at drawing things. His father is an illustrator too. Between them they make a formidable Pictionary team. When Jon is not drawing things that look like other things he works as a senior art director for a Sydney advertising agency. He lives in Rozelle with his wife Marissa, who looks like a bowl of spicy harissa.
