Everyone, I’m sorry that I’ve been so neglectful of my blog lately. As of today, I am 25 weeks pregnant and carrying around our soon-to-be-little-boy has taken up all of my energy lately . . . but today I am thrilled to announce that I have BIG NEWS!!


I just signed with literary agent Sarah LaPolla of Curtis Brown!!


Sarah will be representing my unpublished middle grade series, The Avannia Prophecies (a snippet of the first book is available HERE, if you are interested) as well as my YA series (of which THE VEIL is the first book).

I am BEYOND excited! Sarah loves centaurs (which, spoiler alert, explains why she likes The Avannia Prophecies!). She has been with Curtis Brown for five years and she also has an awesome blog called Glass Cases. I can’t wait to start working with her!

Anyhow, if you’ve known me for any length of time you know that I have a tradition of “celebrating” my various publishing rejections by eating cupcakes. Well, today I’d like to turn that tradition on its head and truly celebrate this new stage in my literary career with the treats that have helped me get through some tough times.



Please help yourself!! As you can see, I’ve already gotten started!
