Meet the Kiwi creators

As a child, Heather Haylock could often be found reading a book while sitting on her horse, or perched way up high in a tree. Nowadays Heather loves the challenge of knitting words into stories of her own.

She is the author of Granny McFlitter the Champion Knitter (2018), which won a Storylines Notable Book Award 2019 and was shortlisted for the Best Picture Book category of the New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults. Its sequel, Granny McFlitter: A Country Yarn (2019), was awarded a Storylines Notable Picture Book Award in 2020.

Thanks to all her research for the Granny McFlitter stories, Heather is also now able to knit yarn into jumpers and other clever shapes. If you want to find her, try looking up. She may be reading, writing or knitting way up high in a tree.

Lael Chisholm lives in Palmerston North, New Zealand, and has loved drawing ever since she was old enough to hold a pencil. After winning the Storylines Gavin Bishop Award in 2017 at the age of 19, Lael has been illustrating picture books in her free time, and has since worked on several award-winning books, most notably the Granny McFlitter series with author Heather Haylock.
