Cristy Burne has worked as a science circus performer, garbage analyst, Santa’s pixie and atom-smashing reporter at CERN in Switzerland.
The Takeshita Demons books are inspired by Cristy’ years living in Japan, a healthy fear of ghosts, and a plastic head she found in her rubbish bin. Based on Japanese folklore, the series features mythical demons, called yokai, traditionally used to teach manners and explain spooky phenomena.
