Literary Crossover Science Fiction
How They Came to Us
In January 2012, contracts manager Angie Hodapp came into the office and said to Kristin, “This might sound really strange, but my mom sent me a must-read novel last night. It’s self-published and really good. I think you should give it a look.” That novel was WOOL. Kristin read it that night on her Kindle, and in a fit of shaking excitement, she emailed Hugh around one in the morning. Her note said something along the lines of, “I have no idea if you have any interest in representation or not–a lot of successful self-published authors don’t–but I’m a huge fan and think this is amazing. I’d love to talk with you.” Two Skype conversations later, they gave it a go. It’s been a whirlwind ever since.
Hugh Howey spent eight years living on boats and working as a yacht captain for the rich and famous. His travels took him all over the islands of the Caribbean, up and down the East Coast, and through the Great Lakes. It wasn’t until the love of his life carried him away from these vagabond ways that he began to pursue literary adventures rather than literal ones. Whisked away to the mountains of North Carolina, he began a stint as the book editor for a popular review site and had reviews published in the New York Review of Science Fiction. Building on these experiences, Hugh wrote his first young-adult novel, MOLLY FYDE AND THE PARSONA RESCUE. The MOLLY FYDE series went on to win rave reviews and praise from readers. Hugh now lives in Jupiter, Florida, with his wife, Amber, and their dog, Bella. The dream is to return to the sea one day and complete the circumnavigation that has so far eluded him. Until then, he sticks with more literary adventures, and enjoys interacting with the readers he meets along the way.
