I'm proud and happy to announce the sale of FORTS, a lyrical concept book by Katie Venit, to Tamar Brazis of Viking.
Happy to announce the sale of MERCEDES SOSA: VOICE OF THE PEOPLE a picture book biography, by Aixa Perez-Prado, to Jessica Echeverria at Lee and Low.
My third sale! WALKING AMONG THE STARS by Lori Dubbin to Kar-Ben Books. A biography of astronaut Jessica Meir, one of the women who participated in the first all-female space walk.
I am so proud and excited to announce my first sale as a literary agent. It's a beautiful, lyrical picture book called PEACHES by Gabriele Davis. Sold to Abrams in a pre-empt, it will come out in the Spring or Summer of 2022. Peaches is about a little girl who uses a treasured family recipe to help heal her family's grief. I 'found' Gabriele in Twitter's PB Party last year. I loved her excerpt from PEACHES but all the other agents and editors were requesting the project too. I didn't think I stood a chance. But somehow Gabriele picked me, and I am so grateful.
So proud and excited! My second sale is Peggy Robbins Janousky's picture book INVADERS FROM MARS: THE TRUTH ABOUT BABIES. This hilarious PB about confusion over a sonogram was sold to Kate Farrell of Holt in an exclusive. Pub date is Spring 2023.
