Literary Agent Shoutout

My brilliant literary agent Toni Mendez died in 2003, at the age of 94. In the industry Toni was known for her exquisite sense of style and amazing collection of French designer hats. I knew her as a friend, someone I talked to at least once a week for many years, someone who despite her age (or perhaps because of it) didn’t shock easily and understood my work better than a lot of people half her age.

It has been a long time without Toni. I still can’t believe she’s really gone.

Now it’s time to find a new literary agent. I have ideas for new books that I can continue to pitch myself, but the guidance of a smart agent is something I could really use. So…if you are an agent or you know a good one, please email me. I’m at chet@rall.com.

Thanks and Happy New Year!
