I am a member of the Santa Barbara Writers Conference and I study screenwriting with Walter Halsey Davis. I have written two books that I would like to see go to film. My children's book Heart of Clouds and my New Adult book Where I Laid Me Down to Sleep - fa cautionary tale or college girls originally published in Wattpad during Nanowrimo 2013.
I am looking for the appropriate Literary Agent. My degrees are from UCSB, Art History 1984
