Glenn Murphy received his masters in science communication from London's Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine. He wrote his first popular science book, Why is Snot Green?, while managing the Explainer team at the Science Museum in London. In 2007 he moved to the United States. He now lives and works in Raleigh, North Carolina, with his wife, Heather, and two unusually large and ill-tempered cats.

Lorna Murphy is Glenn's sister. She studied children's book illustration at Cambridge School of Art. She is obsessed with illustrated books and also writes. Originally from Kent, Lorna now lives in Suffolk with her partner and when not creating books in her studio, she works with children in local schools and public libraries. This provides lots of inspiration for her creative work and ensures her shelves are always full of fantastic books.

Glenn Murphy wrote his first book, Why is Snot Green?, while working at the Science Museum, London. Since then he has written around twenty popular-science titles aimed at kids and teens, including the bestselling How Loud Can You Burp? and Space: The Whole Whizz-Bang Story. His books are read by brainy children, parents and teachers worldwide, and have been translated into Dutch, German, Spanish, Turkish, Finnish, Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Indonesian. Which is kind of awesome. In 2007 he moved to the United States and began writing full-time, which explains why he now says things like 'kind of awesome'. These days he lives in sunny, leafy North Carolina with his wife Heather, his son Sean, and two unfeasibly large felines.
