Our next agent is the amazing Pooja Menon from Kimberley Cameron & Associates. Below is her bio and her very in-depth answers to the ten questions I set for her.
In a few weeks time we will have a new addition to the family, one in desperate need of a loving home.
Little Ricky was found tied to a fence, in the hot sun, by the highway. Starved to near death, this little boy could barely move when a wonderful couple rescued him and took him to Judy’s Pet Lodge.
Our next agent is the wonderful Jennie Goloboy from the Red Sofa Literary Agency. Below is her bio and the ten questions I set for her. Enjoy 🙂
The second query in our series comes from the amazing Peggy Eddleman, author of SKY JUMPERS (published by Random House). Peggy is represented by Sara Crowe from the Harvey Klinger Literary Agency. Peggy Eddleman lives at the foot of the Rocky Mountains in Utah with her husband and their three kids. She enjoys painting, playing games with her family (especially laser tag), and of course, reading.
Today I am very pleased to introduce Jordy Albert from The Booker Albert Literary Agency. Below is a short bio and the ten questions I set. I hope you enjoy this insight.
Hope’s inventions always seem to fail and she feels like an embarrassment to her adoptive parents, especially when inventing is one of the most important skills for the village of White Rock, post WWIII.
She is a classic tomboy who loves nothing better than taking risks.
The fallout from the Green Bombs which decimated civilization as we know it provide the perfect outlet for her thrill seeking nature. The Bomb’s Breath, a single breath from which can kill, is a deadly residue from these bombs but has a property which is irresistible to Hope. Its density makes for an awesome experience, if you can call jumping off a towering cliff without a parachute, awesome.
Sky Jumping is the thrilling pastime of leaping off a cliff and using the density of the Bomb’s Breath to slow your decent, but as you pass through you must hold your breath or die.
Hope’s fearless and sometimes reckless nature is tested to the full when a group of bandits raid her village to steal antibiotics, an immensely valuable commodity in post WWIII. With the threat of death hanging over White Rock she must put her fears behind her and use her natural leadership skills to save her family and friends. The village motto ‘Work With Your Strengths’ becomes more than just a slogan for Hope!
Sky Jumpers is a great read which kids of all ages, including myself, will love.
