Dan Whisker—a self-taught illustrator—was previously a member of the British armed forces for several years and then a serving Detective Constable with Kent Police. Dan has now sought a new career in something that he has always dreamed of doing and that is creating art for children’s fiction and non-fiction. Originally born in Essex in 1972, Dan moved to Kent as a child and finally settled in the green and tranquil village of Chartham—a stone’s throw from Canterbury where he lives with his loving wife of twenty years. He has three teenage children and three small dogs.
