Author Bio

Cottage Door Press is an independent publisher of high-quality children’s books. Our books are designed to spark curiosity in the littlest readers and fan the flames of lifelong learning. We understand children deserve our respect. That's why we always select artwork and stories that encourage caregivers to "read up" to their little ones––exploring interests together, learning together, and giving their young minds room to grow.

We also believe in creating stories that reflect the boundless possibilities of all children. We hope to create books that inspire little ones to connect, encourage them to dream, give them cause to celebrate, and allow them to see themselves beautifully reflected in the stories they read.

To bring these beautiful stories to life, our diverse and talented staff collaborates with authors and illustrators from all backgrounds and nationalities. We have also partnered with multicultural brands and literacy organizations to make sure our books reflect and reach as many little ones as possible. 

Ginger Swift is a pen name for the creative team at Cottage Door Press. We use a name like this when we work together on a story. We choose a name that stands for "red bird," which is our cheerful little mascot.

Giorgia lives and works surrounded by mountains and lakes in a lovely valley near Trento (Italy). She discovered illustration after an adventurous trip through languages and philosophy studies in the awesome Florence where she attended the Nemo Academy of Digital Arts.

Drawing has been a lifelong passion and now she knows that it is also the only (and the best) job imaginable. Her dream is to illustrate the Little Mermaid. She loves drawing and knows all about birds, flowers and strange animals like unicorns. She sings while she’s drawing and lets music be her muse. Her bright colours and cute animals make her work joyful and fun; nature is always a big part of her illustrations and she never wastes an occasion to learn.
