Coral Walker–who now resides in a picturesque village near the River Taff in Cardiff, Wales–was raised in southern China. Writing and drawing have been two constant loves in her life. For many years, she juggled being a mother, a full-time academic teaching computer science, and an artist. She first ventured into children’s illustration to keep her own children entertained. Once she started, she couldn’t stop. Throughout the years, she has tried various mediums, including watercolor, acrylic, and oil painting.
