Good evening, Miss Snark.
I am neither asking for nor expecting minute details -- but did you start out your career wanting to be an agent (does anyone?), or did you have other things in mind?
Thanks, and have a great week.
When I began my career I didn't even know what an agent was. I'd seen vague references to people lending money to Fitzgerald and Hemingway but they all looked like boring old sticks and I wanted to dance in the fountain not sit in an office.
Repeated calls for bail money soon put a stop to the nekkid fountain dancing, and a stern conversation with Grandmother Snark about the lack of foliage on Arborus Dollorus, soon forced Miss Snark to invest in a smart black suit and attache case. Once she actually discovered that there are free books for those who work in the industry, she signed up for a lifetime cruise on the good ship Publishing.
There have been the occasional pirates who've tried to woo Miss Snark from her cruise ship but Killer Yapp fends them off with a cutlass --- and how he learned to drive the Cutlass, I'll never know.
