Biographies:

STEPHEN AXELSEN

Stephen Axelsen was born in Sydney, Australia in 1953. While at high school and university studying sensible things Stephen taught himself to draw well enough to later find work as an illustrator. He has now been writing and illustrating for children, mostly humour and fantasy, for 42 years. Stephen has worked for The School Magazine since 1985 and has illustrated many comic series written by Cassandra Golds, and later two of his own. Two of these series have been published as graphic novels: The Mostly True Adventures of Matthew and Trim (written by Cassandra and illustrated by Stephen) and The Nelly Gang (written and illustrated by Stephen). Stephen has been influenced by writers such as Roald Dahl and Terry Prachett, and illustrators like Arthur Rackham, Ronald Searle, Brian Froud and his childhood friend, Kim Gamble.

ALAN EDWARDS

Alan Edwards has been Editor of The School Magazine since 2010. He loves dealing with the extremely talented writers and illustrators that his job brings him into contact with.

CASSANDRA GOLDS

Sydney-born author Cassandra Golds writes books for children and young adults. Her writing has been described as part parable, part surrealist fable and part love story. Cassandra grew up reading Hans Christian Andersen, C S Lewis and Nicholas Stuart Gray, and wrote her own stories as soon as she could hold a pen. In collaboration with artist Stephen Axelsen, she went on to write a string of flamboyantly themed graphic novels, all of which were published as monthly serials in The School Magazine. Cassandra has also written several other books including Clair-de-lune, The Museum of Mary Child, The Three Loves of Persimmon, and Pureheart.

ANDREW CRANNA

Andrew Cranna is an artist, educator and author based in Sydney NSW. Andrew’s cartoons and illustrations appear regularly in the pages of The School Magazine. He is also the creator of the Bloodhound Boys series of graphic novels for kids published by Walker Books.
