I'm about a week late in announcing this, as I was on vacation when it happened and had VERY slow Internet, but I am beyond thrilled to announce I am now represented by Natascha Morris with BookEnds Literary!!!!!!!

I only write PBs, and as one of my FB posts announced, I started submitting PBs to editors in September 2009. A few years later, I started submitting to agents, and, well, as we know in this industry, few people have overnight successes. I counted up my tally and I've had 187 submissions of 11 different manuscripts since that first submission in 2009 and I finally have my first "YES."

Hopefully with Natascha's help, we will have our first "YES" with a publisher someday (relatively) soon! I am SO excited to have a partner in this very interesting journey to publication!

And of course, these Blueboards have kept me in such great company all these years. I am so happy to have found them!  :love5 :love5 :love5

I know how hard you've worked for this,  so it makes the announcement even sweeter. I hope you and Natascha have a happy and fruitful partnership. The agent road is bumpy, and I'm sure there will be many twists and turns along the way, but all you can do is write and stay positive.  And I'll always be there for you, my #PBPitch partner in crime!
