Agnes Monod-Gayraud and Lorna White
Agnes Monod-Gayraud is a translator and author of children’s books, with a focus on non-fiction titles rooted in nature, culture and foklore. Winner of the 2016 Best Scientific Writing Award from the UK’s Society of Authors for The Book of Bees, published by Thames and Hudson. Language editor for the Astronomy & Astrophysics academic journal, based at the Paris Observatory. Graduate of the Comparative Literature programme at New York University and Cultural Studies at the University of Warsaw. A native New Yorker, she currently lives with her family in London.
Lorna White is a copywriter and writer with a degree in Greek and Roman studies from the University of Exeter. Fascinated by all things mystical, she draws her inspiration from the Greek and Roman myths as well as folklore from across the globe. Half-French, half-English, she grew up flitting between the two nations. Today, she lives in London with her husband and two daughters and their rabbit, Candy.
Together, Agnes and Lorna are writing their first children’s picture book with a ‘folkloric non-fiction’ theme.
