Alli Brydon earned her MFA in Poetry from Sarah Lawrence College, after which she jumped headlong into a career in children’s book publishing. A writer, kidlit editor, and New Yorker, Alli has made her professional life about children’s books and doesn’t regret it for a second. When not writing or editing, she loves to visit art museums, discover new music, chill at the beach, race her family down ski slopes, explore forests, and read books written for children and not-children. She has fiction and nonfiction children’s books published or forthcoming with Sourcebooks, National Geographic Kids, Disney, Macmillan, and Amazon/Two Lions, and is constantly tuned to the world for new ideas. Alli is now an expat, living with her family in the rolling hills just outside of London.
