A Book and an Agent
I’ve received permission to announce that I’m working with Sleeping Bear Press on a new picture book! This one is a biography of conservationist, artist and educator Anna Comstock. This is a book I can really get behind: Anna chose to pursue a career in science long before women were encouraged to do so, and she made great contributions to nature education. Since my own sister is a professor, entomologist, artist and nature enthusiast just like Anna, I’d say this project is quite close to home. I don’t want to give too much away, but stay tuned for more to come!
In other news, I’m also delighted to announce that I’m now represented by Ed Maxwell from Sanford J. Greenburger Associates. Ed got in touch with me after checking out my portfolio at the SCBWI conference in New York this February. Since then we’ve been working together on book ideas and dummies, and I’ve found his editorial suggestions extremely insightful and helpful. I’m excited about what the future holds! Speaking of which… time for me to get back to work.
