Where, oh where to begin? Logic dictates that the beginning would be a good place to start, so here I go…
I have written since I was able to hold a crayon, at first not with an idea to share anything, finish a novel, or even think about submitting anything to be published. As the years have gone by and my life experiences grew, my writing has taken a turn toward more spiritual and/or uplifting short pieces which were inspired by my life’s events. I started to share them more as I met people who I felt would benefit from my insight, or from a particular experience. This led to writing a couple of children’s books, which led to writing longer manuscripts, thrillers, mysteries, and eventually publishing my first book, The Footloose Killer (no longer in print).
Oh wait… back to the beginning…
I was born in Ohio, and adopted by gypsies who were cleverly disguised as Canadians, affording me the wonderful status of “Dual Citizen”. They (we) traveled all over Canada, the US, and some of Mexico throughout my time with them.
Now I have filled many shoes in the literary world.
I am a literary agent, after working with and learning the business from Marisa Corvisiero, Esq. at the Corvisiero Literary Agency, I have founded Inklings Literary Agency.
I am an author. My second novel “Legacy” represented by Jamie Bodnar Drowley will be published by Spence City in September 2014.
I have just received the rights back to my first book, “The Footloose Killer,” I am working on the sequel, and have several other writing projects on the go.
I was an editor. Working with other authors coaching and collaborating is something at which I excelled, and I worked with both independent clients as well as a small, independent press and a small publishing house. As a literary agent, I no longer have time for that so I have packed that pair of shoes away.
I absolutely love attending and speaking at conferences, so if you would like to have me attend yours, please let me know!
