You might've noticed that it's impossible for me to reference my literary agent without putting the word AWESOME in front of her name.
That's because she IS.
My query process was quite the whirlwind, and I ended up having to make a choice. I knew I wanted to be represented by Awesome Agent Holly Root and Waxman Literary when she said the chemistry between Michael and Em was "molten lava holy cats."
That's just one reason. I'll share more agent love next month when we celebrate our one year anniversary.
For now, just enjoy the ... awesome ... that is Agent Holly.
Favorite comfort food?
Depends on the season, but miso soup is on up there. Is that weird? Am I still allowed in the fort?
Favorite game (think summer, flashlight tag, Marco Polo)?
Three-legged racing! I loves me some teamwork.
Sun worshipper, spray tan or SPF 50?
SPF 50, which is hilarious because I have my Portuguese grandma to thank for olive skin that actually tans very easily, but I am a very vigilant* so I over-SPF. (*="gigantic hypochondriac")
Beach or lake? Boat or shore?
Pool first, then beach over lake, but if lake is all I have then boat is a must. I don't care to swim where things live, in general. Fish don't come to my house and get up in my business, am I right? As a native Tennessean lakes are extra hard for me, on account of they turned up often in the news, in the context of "a dead body was pulled out of X Lake." And if I don't swim where things live, I fo' sure don't swim where dead things live.
Air conditioning or open windows?
Favorite summer drink (lemonade, iced sweet tea, Kool Aid)?
Cucumber water! (Try it, it rules. Slice a cuke into a pitcher, add water, taste the awesome.)
Ghost story or Truth or Dare?
Truth or dare, always.
Truth? Or dare?
What singer/musician/band is a must have for The Fort soundtrack?
I will be bringing the Beyonce. Because you know at some point we are all going to have wacky hair and inappropriate makeup and That. Means. Beyonce.
What movie would you bring to watch?
You've Got Mail.
NPH! Funny, adorable, and he would probably be kind to me when I told him he was my only, ever, seriously-I'm-not-kidding-yes-I-married-an-actor-I-do-see-the-irony celeb crush, circa Doogie Howser.
Marshmallows, lightly toasted or burned to a crisp?
Awake all night or first one to sleep?
First one to sleep.
If you could have any YA author visit the fort and tell stories, who would it be and what story would you ask them to tell?
I would ask Suzanne Collins to come, but she could kick back and eat bonbons while we fought our own less-deadly, more-hilarity-filled Hunger Games over the ms to Mockingjay. (I would win, clearly, as I have been working on snares and have crafted a very compelling and entirely faux personal narrative.)
Thank you muchly for visiting The Fort!!
And because Awesome Agent Holly is so awesome she's going to give away a copy of Cinderella Society by Kay Cassidy!
Thanks, Holly! (Isn't she .......... awesome?)
