Finally, I can give my news! NIGHTSHADE CITY, my first manuscript, has been sold to Holiday House Books! I'm so excited to be a part of this house! They've been in the business of children's literature since 1935! Julie Amper, who I've heard loads of great things about, will be my editor and I can't wait to get started!
I want to give a special thanks to my agent, Marietta Zacker. She has been instrumental in making this happen. She is not just an agent, but my biggest supporter and a real friend (and shrink too)!! So many, many thanks Marietta! I'd also like to thank Nancy Gallt, who stood behind my work and of course Craig Virden. If he had not taken a chance on my work, none of this would have been possible. I've said this before, I will forever regret never being able to meet him. Someday, though...
Thanks to everyone involved and a huge thank you to my husband, Eric, who read this manuscript about 20 odd times and was my free freelance editor! He listened to me talk about it endlessly (more like whine) and still stayed married to me!! Now that's a great man!!
