Matilda Tristram is a Comics Writer, Animator, Filmmaker and Lecturer. In February 2013, while 18 weeks pregnant with her son James, she was diagnosed with bowel Cancer. From the beginning of her diagnosis she wrote a diary comic which followed her life through this time, naming it “Probably Nothing – A diary of not-your-average nine months”. In the summer of 2014 the charming and witty comic was published by Penguin Books and has since gone on to spark the attention of the press and public across Britain. Matilda is currently working on a collection of children’s books with her partner Tom Duxbury, the first is to be published this October.
