I am pleased as punch to announce the upcoming nuptials between my fantastic agent Stephen Barbara of the Foundry Agency (also representing Laura Amy Schlitz, Lauren Oliver, Monica Edinger, Peter Sieruta, Jules Danielson, and many others) and Senior Razorbill editor and incipient author Jessica Rothenberg. Huge congratulations to the two of you! Of all the deals to come out of Italy this year, this has to be the best. Many happy returns!
Wedding Announcement: Congrats to My Marvelous Agent!
