That someone is my amazing agent Peter Knapp with The Park Literary Group. I couldn’t have made it here without him, and I’m so happy he wanted me as his client. He changedΒ  my life! Go follow him and like him. He’s … did I already say amazing? Oh, okay. Well, HE IS!

Thank you Liz Pelletier for having faith in me! Thanks everyone for having patience while we worked this out. And a special thanks to Erica Chapman, Shannon Duffy, Shelley Watters, Marieke Nijkamp, Veronica Bartles, and many others who’ve helped me along the way. LIBRARY JUMPERS will be in hard cover soon, and I’ll get to hug and cry on it and sleep with it …
