YA Contemporary -- An Amazing Ending to a Long Journey

Many of you know that YA Contemporary is my first passion, the reason I first started putting pen to paper. It took some time and several manuscripts before I found one that called to me.  The patience, the trials, the support of my CP's and agent, and the all the heartbreak that went into this writing journey paid off and I can now ecstatically announce that I have sold my YA Contemporary ... and to the amazing Janine O'Malley at FSG/ Macmillan at that!

  3. WAHOOOOOOO!!!!!! I'm so excited I can't even stand it. And even though I'm partial to the title, it's got nothing on the story and writing! ;)
