Layn Marlow quickly acquired an international following for her best-selling picture book collaborations with Amber Stewart (OUP) of which there are now half a dozen. Her first solo picture book, Hurry Up and Slow Down firmly established her as a creator of picture books with irresistible appeal to readers all over the world. These titles have now sold over a million copies worldwide and have been translated into more than 20 languages.
Layn’s beautifully observed, exquisite illustrations tug at the heartstrings as she masterfully delivers relationships full of warmth and humour, both between animals and humans. This skill made her the perfect choice for the Dick King-Smith Estate when they commissioned her to illustrate their new website featuring Dick's iconic books.
More recently she has collaborated with debut author Charley Farley on the first of two picture books, A Twit for Twoo (Orchard). A Dare for a Hare follows in 2020.
Layn’s titles include I'll Catch You if You Fall by Mark Sperring and You Make Me Smile (OUP).
Layn lives in Hampshire with her family.
