My Biggest Announcement Ever

As if December hasn't been fantastic enough already, there's one new development worth mentioning.

I have an agent.

(Yes, I really said that.)

I've signed with Josh Getzler of Russell and Volkening. And I really do believe we're the perfect "fit."

Best Christmas present ever!
