Rilla Alexander has been making books since she was two. She would tell the story to her mother who’d type it onto her pictures and bind them into books complete with a biography.
Her alter-ego Sozi stars in her books “Her Idea” and “The Best Book in the World” published by Flying Eye Books. Most recently she has illustrated Jane Yolen’s “A Bear Sat on my Porch Today” (Chronicle Books, 2018) and Lemony Snicket’s “Swarm of Bees” (Little Brown, 2019).
Originally from Australia, Rilla has lived in London, Berlin and Portland (Oregon) and now calls Los Angeles home.
