Agent No Longer Undercover

So many of you guys are asking me who my new agent is. But being an be incredibly kind and thoughtful person, I'm not revealing her ID on the blog to prevent her inbox from immediately being inundated with my fan mail. Not.

Which brings me to Daphne Unfeasible.

Followers of Maureen Johnson's hilarious blog have for years enjoyed Maureen's unfeasible tales about her agent, Daphne Unfeasible - here pictured with MJ, as usual, incognito, hiding behind Free Monkey (Free Monkey is a monkey Maureen acquired, free, on her travels, who is a kind of sidekick, soothsayer, companion and who once kept a travel diary).

Anyway before I digress further, Maureen is currently blogging writer in residence at the wonderful Inside a Dog website ("Outside a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside a dog, it's too dark to read." Groucho Marx) and has just revealed Daphne Unfeasible's true identity. Daphne Unfeasible is actually Kate Schafer and Kate Schafer is getting married, moving to Colorado and opening the KT Literary Agency which is now open to submissions from middle grade and YA authors!

And with Daphne unveiled, Kate has also started blogging at Ask Daphne - go ahead, ask her anything you like about agents and getting published!
