I HAZ AN AGENT!!!!



Yes, guys and gals, I have a new agent for my Young Adult books!!!!

It is the ever fabulous Leigh Feldman at Writer's House. Leigh represents one of my all time, hands down FAVORITE YA authors, Sarah Dessen. She also helped to bring Charles Frasier's Cold Mountain to bookstores as well as Arthur Golden's Memoirs of a Geisha.


Leigh fell in love with my latest book....which is somewhat a YA version of the Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich. More like paying homage to my love of Dog the Bounty Hunter along with Savannah, Georgia high society!!

I know I'm going to work so well with Leigh because we've been through a round of revisions already, and I love her vision.

It's been a long 5 months since my agent left the business, and I was forced to start the dreaded querying again. I won't lie that it hasn't been soul crushing, mind numbing, panic inducing, lose your mind kind of ride.

But it's great when you can finally see the purpose of it all. Of course, it throws a wrench into my publishing RTD, but it's all worth it in the end!!
