What can I say about myself?
Well I’m sure my husband and kids could tell you a few things no doubt. The stories from my siblings would be even worse, so I’ll write this myself in order to maintain some degree of control.
I am a writer, cartoonist and artist who works in acrylic, oils, ink. And sometimes a pencil with pooh bear on it.
I am married to a wonderful man and we have three young children who were all born within three and a half years (so I had 5 years of irregular sleep), and they are the inspiration for my comics. We live on the Kapiti Coast of New Zealand in an old house that has managed to take everything that we have thrown at it so far.

She had wanted to be a professional speaker and trainer for many years but had used every excuse under the sun – calling them ‘reasons’ – and the clincher was ‘You’re turning 50: forget it! You’re too old’.
Instead of listening to that inner voice, Bev decided to go for it, and in 2007, just after her 50th birthday, she established Master Networking, a s ... read more

Greg Redd has been fascinated by words and how they can be made to fit together in an effort to make sense of a mad world since an early age. When the art and drama of his high school years faded as a creative outlet, words took their place.
At first the words he put together were kept private.
Then he started working in hospitality management and later in adult education. He started putting the words together for technical manuals, corporate training tools and academic materials.
Later he became bored with writing for business and started random scribblings to feed his frequently obscure and rampantly imaginative creative side again.
Then, in the early hours of an insomnia driven morning in late 2012 h ... read more
