Melissa Coffey Signs With Agent

Congratulations to Austin SCBWI member and picture book writer Melissa Coffey! She is now represented by Charlotte Wenger at Prospect Agency.

More about Melissa: She grew up in Wisconsin toting around an overstuffed book bag and a dog-eared spiral notebook of poetry and stories. Unsurprisingly, her first job was at the public library. After earning a journalism degree, she moved to Atlanta and called CNN Center home. Melissa also freelanced for Fortune 500 clients and magazines before pursuing her passion as a children’s writer. She now lives in Austin with her husband and two sons—who thankfully inherited her book-loving genes.
