Cressida Cowell grew up in London and on a small, uninhabited island off the west coast of Scotland. The island had no roads, houses or electricity, leaving Cressida lots of time to write and draw.
Now grown and with a husband and three children of her own, Cressida is the author of the popular "How to Train Your Dragon Series". The 10th book in the series, How to Seize a Dragon's Jewel: The Heroic Misadventures of Hiccup the Viking, was released in 2012. The 11th book, How to Betray a Dragon's Hero should be available in the U.S. in the fall of 2013. She has also written the Emily Brown picture books, featuring Emily Brown, a little character with big personality, and her sidekick Stanley, the stuffed rabbit.
