Viviane Schwarz was born in Germany. She studied English at university while writing fantasy stories to practice, then she moved to Cornwall and got a master’s degree in Illustration. She loves living by the sea, and most of her books feature at least one underwater scene and lots of fish my favourite being ‘Shark and Lobster’s Amazing Undersea Adventure’.
After moving to London Viviane started illustrating as well as writing books. Her books include There are Cats in this Book and There are No Cats in this Book.
She was chosen for a Booktrust Best New Illustrators Award in 2011.
