About the Authors

Colin Cardwell

Colin Cardwell lives on the northern beaches of Sydney, Australia with his wife and his two sons. Like many Scots, he's not lived in Scotland for a long time, but made sure his sons could say 'Och Away' pretty much before anything else. Like many Scots, he also likes a good story, especially an unlikely one. In his day job, Colin runs a games development business. The Boy Who Ate Himself is Colin's first book. He has a lot more unlikely stories to tell though

Tony Lowe

Tony Lowe was born in Canberra, Australia. Drawing had always been his passion growing up but it wasn't until his early adulthood he realised he could make a living out of it. While most of his artwork is for online content, his inspiration comes from purchasing prints of other artists and watching animated films with his three children.


Praise for The Boy Who Ate Himself
