Anne, your website and Mother Daughter Project look great! I've got some catching up to do!

I know you have an agent or did anyway - just in case you are looking I thought of you and Sparta when I saw this contest -

Hi Joyce!

Great to hear from you, and thanks for the info on the contest - I'll definitely check it out.

I did have an agent, but she quit the industry awhile ago and I haven't found a new one yet. Most agents tell me they're only looking for contemporary YA right now.
