About the Author
Sigi Hallis Cohen grew up in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, and lives in Perth, Western Australia. He has a compulsion for matching words that rhyme, graduating from writing limericks and sonnets to writing children's verse. Sigi works as a lawyer which he says greatly alleviates the stresses of writing children’s picture books.
His first book, My Dead Bunny, was short-listed for the 2016 Children’s Book Council of Australia Book of the Year Awards. His second book Filthy Fergal, was published in 2018. His newest title, There's Something Weird About Lena, published by Walker Books in 2020, is a follow-up to My Dead Bunny. Four more children's books will be published during 2020/2021.
James started his illustration career in primary school, drawing cartoons for the school newspaper. The paper only lasted one issue - probably because his class used smoke machines to fake a fire in the school hall (though it did make the front page).
In the Lion was his first book with Walker, and it was selected for the International Youth Library’s prestigious White Raven List. His latest, My Dead Bunny, was short-listed for the 2016 Children’s Book Council of Australia Book of the Year Awards. There’s Something Weird About Lena is out in October 2020.
James is in high demand as a speaker in schools and libraries across Australia. He is also an ambassador for literacy charities Room To Read and Books In Homes. He lives in Perth with his wife, son and labrador. www.jamesfoley.com.au, @jamesfoleybooks
