Wrapping Up the Year

This is going to be my last real blog post of the year, so I wanted to take the time to reflect on 2016 in my favorite way...with lists!!


This has been a pretty awesome agenting year for me.  Each year has been stronger than the last, and I am THRILLED to say that this year was the best yet, with deals for:

·         Erin Peabody for Books 1-6 of her nonfiction Creatures of Legend series (Little Bee)
·         Meghan Masterson for THE WARDROBE MISTRESS (St Martins)
·         Suzanne Kamata for THE MERMAIDS OF LAKE MICHIGAN (Wyatt-MacKenzie)
·         Alana Delacroix for her Shifting Love series (Kensington Lyrical)
·         Dorcas Cheng-Tozun for START, LOVE, REPEAT (Hachette Center Street)
·         Charles Maynard for his MG adaptation of I AM A SECRET SERVICE AGENT (St Martins)
·         Rie Neal for her IP project about a group of elementary-school-aged girls who start a band (Little Bee)
·         Lauren Smith for audio books for the next two books in her Wicked Rivals series, as well as the first two novellas in her The Seduction Series (Tantor)
