How They Came to Us
Quressa found Rosie through the online contest PitchWars in 2017. As soon as Quressa read Rosie’s pitch and sample chapters she was hooked. She had to patiently wait several weeks for the manuscript to come in—which happened right before Thanksgiving. She read it right away and was the first agent to offer representation. She then had to wait over the long holiday as Rosie made her decision and gave other agents the chance to read. Ultimately, Rosie chose Quressa. A Slytherin-Hufflepuff match made in nerd heaven!
