How I Got My Agent: Alayne Kay Christian

Alayne Kay Christian is an award winning children's book author, life coach, and blogger who just landed her dream agent, Erzsi Deak from Hen & ink. Alayne and I met through Julie Hedlund’s 12x12 challenge and Susanna Hill’s Making Picture Book Magic class, and I've had the good fortune of receiving several of her wonderful and insightful critiques.

She answers some questions about how she got to this point.

Q. Tell me about your writing journey. How long have you been writing for children?

First, I would like to thank you, Sylvia, for helping me celebrate this exciting time by sharing my news with your blog readers.
