Stephen Dixon is the debut author and illustrator of The Gingerbread Man 2: What Happened Later?  The Gingerbread Man 2 is a fun, rhyming sequel to the traditional folk tale, in a wonderfully illustrated and kind-hearted follow-up to the dramatic ending of the original story.

Stephen loves making up stories for his two young children and has always loved to write, draw and paint.  When his son was 3 he enjoyed reading The Gingerbread Man, though not really the sudden ending, and one night asked a simple question - ‘What happened next?’  The silly story told that night turned into a book, some time later, which is now available to purchase in hardback, paperback or eBook versions.

Stephen has won awards for his drawings and loves to sketch the places he visits, when he is not chasing around after his children or working as an architect  (Stephen has borrowed a bit of his architecture website space for this author page!). The Gingerbread Man 2 has been hand illustrated using acrylic paints, technical pens, pencils and dip pens. Stephen lives in Yorkshire, England with his wife and two children.
