I’m looking for an agent for my dark YA fantasy novel. Silverwing is a story about an innocently self-centered lady who after an engagement-gone-bad is willing to do anything to regain her place in the society. Catfights and faux-passes ensue.

At the moment, I’m also giving finishing touches to a novel written around the short story that won me the first place in the Writers of the Future Contest Q3 2013.
