The Red Wool Editions Team

Clare-Rose Trevelyan

Author and Founder of Red Wool Editions

Clare-Rose’s dream has always been to help create a kinder world, and she believes that the best way to do this is to awaken the philosophers inside the minds of children. By 2008, she had a dress-up chest full of half-written leather-bound journals, stashes of CDs full of home-made songs – unmixed – and a swimming pool of photographs of everyone she loved. She was living out of a suitcase in Alphabet city when she decided to gather all these thoughts and turn them into children’s books. 

She met Francis Lim and Yongho Moon in 2012, and they worked together for years on translating her junkyard of musical, visual stories into a finished collection of five books with accompanying soundtracks called The Past Life Library, along with four smaller books that comprise the Young Philosophers Series.
