Christine and Athina, writing as Athina Simon, are two young women—mothers of European decent—and they met
three years ago in the US.

“Our passion for writing and illustrating brought us closer together during our leisure time. Animal lovers, artistic,
passionate about our families and kids. We value the power and importance of friendship, self-respect, and caring
about others’ feelings.

“We both had incredible guidance from our mothers of how to be polite, proper and to cherish friendship. We
wanted to show children that in a make-believe world, even a witch has to learn how to become polite and kind. It is
not easy at first for her, but she realizes that being good will only bring good things back to her. We are looking
forward to seeing where this journey will take us and hope that children everywhere will enjoy learning with Mayia
and her friends.
