Olivia Hope Signs with Bloomsbury
In exciting news Irish author Olivia Hope has landed a deal with Bloomsbury via her agent Clare Wallace at the Darley Anderson Children’s Agency. I first met Olivia at the Cork World Book Festival Getting Published event when her story about a robin made me cry – Olivia is a gifted story teller, and Clare Wallace was just as taken as I was when I introduced them!
DA say “We are thrilled to welcome Olivia Hope to the DA Children’s Agency. Her inspiring and imaginative picture book, Be Wild, Little One, will be published by Bloomsbury.
This beautiful and moving story about a grandparent helping their grandchild see adventure in the world, in one day, through imaginative play, has been compared to Helen Oxenbury for its quality and timeless appeal.
Before writing, Olivia was a record breaking hammer thrower. But she insists she has never (knowingly) thrown a child.
Many congratulations, Olivia, we are delighted to have you here!
