Presto- Change-O!


Al -a-ka-ZAM! This past week I signed on to The McVeigh Agency and it does feel like strange magic.

Mark McVeigh is a literary Agent with over a decade of experience as an editor working for publishing power houses. He's now taken his passion for publishing into the world of representing the creative people. An author himself - he's seen all sides and wants to help those creative voices find their audiences.

For the past two years I've been focused on figuring out what kind of portfolio would click with someone in the publishing world - it finally took me doing artwork and telling stories that were just plain old fun for me -and - CLICK. I heard the click- I saw it- I witnessed it. Like magic. I'm not sure how it happened but I am excited and happy and wondering what's the next thing the magician has up his sleeve...

I'm the rabbit pulled out of the hat and Mark McVeigh will get to work his magic and Abracadabra- well, we'll all have to watch and wait and wonder... That's just part of the fun....
