Books -- reading and writing.
Home, cooking, the weather.
And whatever connections I can make between these chapters of my life.

MY Agent!

In answer to all my writing buddies who've been emailing to ask whether I've touched ground this week, the answer is no. I'm still pinching myself over the amazing news that came late last week. The terrific, delightful, smart Linda Pratt of the Fogelman Agency is now mine (ok, mine and a few others, but still...). Yay! Agents make the book world go round and I'm hoping she'll find a happy home for my middle-grade historical fiction novel.

(For my non-writing buddies, this is a big step in the right direction, but it doesn't mean you'll be reading this novel in a month or two! Still crossing fingers and toes though. Stay tuned.)
