Tracy in Linda Epstein, agent news, picture books

I can't believe it's been a year since I last blogged! It's not because I haven't had news or things to talk's just that most of the stuff that's been going on hasn't been the kind I can share...yet.

But today is different! Today I DO have news I can share!

I'm thrilled to announce that I'm now represented by the incredible Linda Epstein of Emerald City Literary Agency. Seeing as Linda was on my "dream agent" list, I'm pretty well over the moon right now. :-D


I've been continuing with my YA writing, but in the last year I've also branched into writing picture books. My son is almost four and has been DEVOURING story after story...and after a while, all of those picture books got under my skin, and I started thinking of ideas of my own. There's something incredibly special about writing a story and being able to share it with YA isn't exactly his scene yet. But he always has the best reaction to my picture book attempts: "Mommy, read it again." Melts my heart every time.

At any rate, I'm looking forward to seeing where this new direction takes me, and I'm THRILLED to have Linda by my side for all the highs and lows to come. Hope you all are doing well! I'll try to blog more than once a year from now on. Promise. ;-)
