Martina lives in Melbourne with her partner Jonathan, two daughters Saskia and Katja and two golden retrievers Harry and Murphy.
She works as an engineer and in her spare time enjoys cartooning and writing. She is particularly fond of the dung beetle and often wishes Doug and his family would set up permanent residence in her back yard to deal with the dung from her two dogs.
Doug is a roller dung beetle and he loves to roll dung. No matter what the weather is like. No matter how high the mountain. No matter what obstacle may come his way, he will roll and roll until he makes it home. Unless, maybe, the obstacle is a dung beetle eating lizard!
