Navratil, Elisabeth

Elisabeth Navratil's grandfather, Michel Navratil, and her father and uncle, were aboard the Titanic on the night the world's unsinkable ship sank. The story of the tragedy is now very much a part of Elisabeth's own life story. She has realised her dreams of a career in music by becoming an opera director. Elisabeth has directed works such as Carmen, The Marriage of Figaro and Don Giovanni, and as well as a production called Mozart Titanic.

ní Chíobháin, Muireann

Muireann is a children's author and performer. Although a Cork City native, she spent much of her childhood in the Corca Dhuibhne Gaeltacht in Kerry where her father's family are from and is a proud Irish speaker. When she’s not writing books, dancing about on your TV screen or cooking up new shows or ideas, you'll find her in the sea, doodling in her sketchbook or most likely running around after her young and very energetic sons on the beaches of Tramore, Co. Waterford.

She hopes that this book will be the perfect excuse to fulfil a lifelong dream of getting a puppy and calling him Murphy!
