Duncan Beedie is a children’s author and illustrator based in Bristol, UK. He has been doodling and drawing since way back in the early 1980s, lying on his parents’ living room floor, grasping a felt tip in his clammy little fist.
Duncan worked in animation for 14 years before transitioning into children's literature. Drawing and storytelling has always played a significant in his career. When not in front of a drawing tablet or sketchbook, he likes to spend time with his wife, daughter and tirelessly playful springer spaniel 'Ivor.'
