Illustrator Marion Lindsay has always loved stories and pictures, so it made perfect sense when she decided to become a children's book illustrator, and she won the Egmont Best New Talent Award. She lives and works in Cambridge, and in her spare time paints glass and makes jewellery. Find Marion at www.marionlindsay.co.uk.
