BiographyHistory

Stephen Michael King was born in Sydney and loved drawing from an early age. After leaving school he worked at the local library as a children's library assistant where he read stories to pre-schoolers. This was valuable training for his future career as a children's author. He went to work as an artist at Walt Disney studios in Sydney. In 1994 Stephen started working as a designer and illustrator for a children's publisher. Since then King has authored and illustrated numerous children's books and won several awards.
