Update 4/17/13: Terrie is no longer my agent.
(Jumping up and down) I’m so excited I could just burst. Seriously. The news is that great.
I have an agent!
A big thank you to Terrie, who believed in me from the start. I'm looking forward to building a writing career together, and I can't wait to see what wonderful things we will accomplish.
Here's some of Terrie’s background from her Linkedin account:
Terrie joined AKA in September 2009 as the Foreign Rights Specialist in addition to her other talents. Wolf Literary Services and Anita Kushen and Associates merged in October 2009.
Terrie mastered her skills in the literary world from inside the offices of several large companies, which include CBS, NBC, and Hobson's Press. She studied English Literature at Cambridge University, Creative Writing at NYU and Journalism at CU-Denver.
Terrie's credits include the EMMY, Queen's Service Award (UK), La Voz y Papel (Spain), and Young Journalist of the Year.
AKA Literary, LLC was born in early-2010 and will continue to honor the established efforts of Anita Kushen and Associates while recognizing the needs of an ever-changing industry.
I want to thank all of my writer friends who have been an army of support. You are an amazing community and I'm blessed to be a part of it.
