That moment when... I became a literary agent.

My passion has always been writing. And over recent years I've realized that I have another passion...other YA writers. Ever since being a part of founding and running Teen Author Boot Camp which, in the near future will be spreading to other locations, I have known that finding talented writers and helping them along is something I love to do.
So...I pursued this idea, and over time, one thing led to another and now I'm Junior Agent at Gateway Literary.This will be a journey. I know I have a lot to learn. But I feel certain that this is the path for me.
 I plan to focus on YA writers exclusively with particular interest in young writers, like the ones we see coming to TABC every year.

Stay tuned... because I'm sure I will have more to say along the way about this new phase in my career.
