Amy Bearce Signs With Agent

Congratulations to author Amy Bearce, who recently signed with agent Alice Sutherland-Hawes of the Madeleine Milburn Agency. A Southwest Texas chapter member, Amy was last year’s Honor recipient of the Cynthia Leitich Smith Mentor Award at Austin’s annual conference. Author mentor Jennifer Ziegler chose a winner and runner-up for the mentorship, offering a critique for Amy’s manuscript. Several months after completing revisions based on that critique, Amy signed with her agent.
