Writer's Workbook: I Got "The Call"

May 10, 2017

Chaucer's Bookstore in Santa Barbara, CA.

I'm thrilled to announce I am now represented by The Knight Agency. I will be co-agented by Heather Tebbs and Deidre Knight.

We signed the agreement yesterday and I'm still reeling. Things happened fast. The agency held its Twitter pitch event #TKA20 on April 9. I got a request from Deidre and submitted a new project I started last November. I got "the call" from Heather in the form of an email last week.

I signed my first book contract in 2015 and have been flying solo ever since, guided by generous, savvy colleagues as well as by my own (sometimes tremendous) mistakes.

Having an ally in my corner--a team of allies, really--is a new and exciting change. I'm also proud to join an amazing, star-studded group of authors represented by TKA. I can't wait to see what's around the corner.
