You'd probably have rocked as a penguin herder, but since you can't walk in snow boots anyway, I'm glad you never, ever gave up on your writing dream! Huge congrats!!!

Lol writermutt, penguin herder does sound like a cool job, now I come to think of it :moose

Hah, thanks Katie, it looks faster than it is, since I naturally managed to do everything backwards and get publisher interest way before I found an agent...

Thanks again everyone, you're so lovely!! *smooshes y'all*
