I hope this shot from one of my summer hikes conveys how I feel to share my exciting writing news. Any writer’s journey can be rough at times and smooth at others, but right now, I’m seeing the beautiful vistas ahead of me, because I’ve found an agent! I’m thrilled to be represented by Lyndsay Hemphill of ICM Partners.

We met through the pitch sessions at this fall’s NJRWA Put Your Heart in a Book Conference. Lyndsay was looking for science fiction and fantasy romance, and I was pitching my contest winner Passages, a science fiction romance.

A few weeks later, delayed by Hurricane Sandy shutting down NYC, I printed out her email requesting a phone conversation and taped it to my microwave so it could sink in I was really about to have ‘the call’ conversation. No kidding!

She’s super excited about my writing and story and I’m confident she’s going to provide great support on the next phase of my career. So, let’s enjoy the flight!

    What excellent news! I’m so happy to hear an agent has hooked up with such a talented Mud Puddle critique partner and author. I wish you all the best.
