The Children’s Story Book written by Hazel Hiles Illustrated by Nick Edge and Joel Kelly
Hazel and Andy Hiles met in the year 2000 at Abberley Hall School, Worcestershire, in the Uk. Hazel was the Head of Drama and Andy Head of Music. It quickly became obvious that they made up a dynamic writing team! They have been collaborating for seventeen years and have worked in the UK, Kuwait and Dubai. Prior to meeting both Hazel and Andy had extensive and varied professional careers in their respective fields. Andy was a professional trombonist who had worked nationally on stage and in the concert Halls as well as working in Repertory Theatre and for the Royal Shakespeare Company. He was equally at home freelancing in the Jazz and classical scene in the Midlands. For many years Hazel worked in professional theatre writing and directing adults and children and also set up two very successful Youth Theatres in Worcestershire and Yorkshire. She is passionate about her song and playwriting, loves writing issue based drama and directing physical theatre. Hazel and Andy have written more than fifteen original musicals for both children and adults. Future plans include a sequel to Robbie’s Rocket – Robbie’s Supersonic Submarine! The musical and book will be touring in Europe and the Middle East during 2017-2018.
