Alyson O'Brien is commissioning editor at Hardie Grant Egmont’s award-winning picture-book imprint Little Hare. She works with some of the best authors and illustrators in the business, including Andrew Joyner, Davina Bell, Carol Thompson, Freya Blackwood and David Mackintosh. Alyson previously worked as a senior editor, editor and publishing assistant, and from 2003 until 2007 was the children’s book buyer at Waterstones in Edinburgh, Scotland.
If Alyson isn't reading or gazing at illustrations, she's likely to be wrangling children, at the cinema or planning a trip to the Adelaide Hills.
Alyson will be running bootcamps for Picture Books authors on Sunday
