Steve Skidmore (Author)
Steve Skidmore writes with Steve Barlow. Together they are Britain's most popular comedy writing and performing double act for young people. Not surprisingly, they are known as The 2 Steves!
The 2 Steves met over twenty years ago when they were both teaching in Nottingham. Since then they have written over 160 books together. They have also acted as series editors on numerous reading programmes for several major publishing houses.
The 2 Steves are in great demand for author visits to schools, colleges and libraries across the world. They also undertake INSET events and make regular appearances at Literary Festivals.
Steve Skidmore is shorter than Steve Barlow and less hairy. He was born in Birstall near Leicester in England. After managing to pass some exams at school, he went on to Nottingham University to supposedly read English, but spent most of his time playing sport and doing a variety of summer jobs including counting pastry pie lids (yes, really).
He trained as a teacher of Drama, English and Film studies, before teaming up with Steve Barlow to become a full time author.
He lives in Leicester and is a great rugby fan (he supports Leicester Tigers - "Come on you Tiiiiigeeeers!").

He worked in a village school in Botswana for four years before returning to the UK and working with Steve Skidmore. The Two Steves tour extensively in the UK and overseas, and are frequent visitors to book festivals including Edinburgh and Hay. Their work for Hachette includes the highly popular I Hero and Crime Team choose-your-adventure books, and their I Horror series is raising the short hairs at the back of readers' necks with Orchard Books.
Santy Gutierrez (Illustrator)
Santy Gutierrez was born in Spain, grew up in Vigo, and now lives in Corunna (La Coruna), both seaside cities. He doesn't remember choosing to be a cartoonist - he just doesn't remember ever having been anything else! If he had lived in the Stone Age, he'd be painting mammoths on the cave instead of going out with the rest of the tribe to hunt them.
Santy is intellectually curious and anything that tickles his neurons attracts him like a moth to the light. Everything that influences him comes out as drawings. He spends most of his time on his own planet like the Little Prince ... and in spite of that, he has been able to have a wonderfu
