Hannah Eaton was born in London and now lives in Brighton. She is an artist, writer and performer, and works with young people in care. Naming Monsters (Myriad, 2013) is her first book; an excerpt from it was shortlisted for the 2012 First Graphic Novel Competition.
Eaton’s work has appeared in The Comix Reader and she has also self-published a collection of three short fables, but most remains in her bottom drawer. After receiving a BA in Fine Art from the University of Oxford and studying for an MA in Cultural Studies and teacher training, she worked with children in residential settings before taking up her current position in a primary school. A voracious reader of comics since the age of eight, she was brought up on the Beano, Viz and Posy Simmonds and graduated to Robert Crumb and Dan Clowes. She is currently working on her second graphic novel for Myriad.
