10 Random Thoughts and Takeaways from #RWA17

I just returned from the annual RWA conference, which concluded yesterday. As an extreme introvert, I’ll need at least a week to recover.

Mission Accomplished: Agent Acquired

So this happened today. I'm happy to officially announce that I'm now represented by Sarah Younger of the Nancy Yost Literary Agency. (It's been on Twitter, so it must be for real, right?
