Helen's agent sold her first novel, BROKEN WINGS, to Samantha McFerrin at Harcourt.
It's great news for Helen, a seasoned picture book author. It also gives me particular delight because I got to read an early draft of the book and loved it. Helen revised and revised--pouring years worth of love and talent into this book. Persistence really does matter. I can't wait to hold the finished version in my hands.
