FWA Writer’s Conference

I’m spending the next few days with my friend and fellow writer, Kristen Paul, in Orlando at the Florida Writer’s Conference.

I’ve already pitched Kobi’s story to two agents.  One requested the full manuscript of his story and two chapters of Murder of Crows, while the other agent is getting away from Middle Grade books and decided to pass.  So good things are already coming out of it!

Not to mention the Royal Palm Literary Awards are Saturday night at 9:00 (way past my bed time).  There are 82 finalists competing in 30 categories – which, by my math, means there are only 2 or 3 places in category to take…GO KOBI!

RPLA 001Kinda hard to see – but check out the first name in the third column.

Stay tuned for more info!


About Heather Hamel

Growing up with horses is a little girls dream come true. Heather’s dream in life was to be a horse trainer - how dreams change - sort of! She moved to the wonderfully historic town of St. Augustine, Florida and was a historic tour guide and a ghost story teller while putting herself through college to become a special education teacher. After graduating, she felt the pull of horses in her life again. That's when she met Kobi! She learned quickly that when you own horses you become a part time vet, part time nutritionist, and full time equestrian. She wouldn't change a thing! In addition to being completely obsessed with her herd, she still teaches and tutors students with learning disabilities, and more specifically, dyslexia.
