Sisters Prudence Woods and Pene Chadwick spent their childhood on a cattle farm in the Central Tablelands of NSW. This fabulous setting enabled the girls to raise a swag of baby animals; from calves and lambs to ducklings, chickens, puppies and kittens. Their love of animals continues to be an important aspect of their adulthood and has lovingly been brought to life through the adventures of Rosie-May Blue.

About the Author

P.E. Woods has always loved to read and is extremely excited to be releasing her first book, 'Rosie-May Blue: Mayhem at the Pet Show'. Being a teacher has allowed P.E. Woods to share her love of literature with children, particularly stories of self-resilience, animals and those with a dash of mystery! In her spare time, P.E. Woods continues to read and she particularly enjoys mystery novels. She lives on a farm and loves to spend time with her dogs, cat, horse, guinea pig, sheep, cattle… and of course, her patient husband and two gorgeous girls! 


About the Illustrator


Pene Chadwick is a Graphic Designer who has worked in the design and print industry for over 20 years. After working in studios and printers in Sydney and London, Pene returned home in 2014 to live on the family property where she experiences the best of both worlds of living a rural lifestyle with her Irish husband and her beloved kelpie, helping out on the family farm and running her little studio, Pencil Pop Creative Graphic Design, in Running Stream, NSW. After working for a variety of clients in London, she rediscovered her passion for watercolour when a client asked for their new brand to incorporate a loose watercolour element. 

This ignited her passion and obsession with all things watercolour, putting paint to paper rather using a computer, sparked a new creative direction for her and has developed her own little quirky loose watercolour style which she uses in design projects for clients, product illustrations, bespoke wedding stationery suites and commissioned pet portraits. When her little sister P.E. Woods asked her to illustrate her book, Rosie-May Blue, it was not only an honour to work with her sister and help bring her story to life, but most definitely a dream project for her.
