And another happy bit of pre-Christmas news...

...I now have an agent!

Courtesy of the ups and downs of the publishing world, the departure from Penguin New Zealand of Geoff Walker - my publisher and rock and shoulder to lean on, and the constant nagging of Paul Cleave, I finally got my act together and went in search of an agent.

So I am absolutely chuffed to say I am now represented by Gregory & Company, of London. They are a  specialty agency, particularly crime fiction, and have a few names on their list of whom you may be familiar - Val McDermid, Mo Hayder, Minette Walters, Paul Cleave, and now moi!

Lets hope it leads to great things. I feel a little more secure in my world now.

What excellent news for you!

I have just started the process; I hope there will be an agent left for me somewhere :D

You couldn't have made a better choice, Vanda. They've represented me for 22 years and they're a great team. (They're also great fun!)

Thank you one and all - as I said, in a world of uncertainty, this has certainly helped me to feel a teeny weeny bit more secure.

Great to hear from you Val, and that you've had such a great experience with Gregory & Co. From what I've seen so far, they are a lot of fun!
