Dear Agent for a Day,
What if you could make things happen just by imagining them? Fourteen year old Sarah Lewis has the power, but she’d do anything to get rid of it. That’s because her talent is uncontrollable and unpredictable, and when it takes over, people usually end up getting hurt.
Sarah’s struggle to accept her gift and the responsibility it thrusts upon her are at the center of Running Blind, a completed young adult manuscript of approximately 60,000 words.
Fearful of her secret gift, Sarah does everything possible to avoid triggering it. She learns to blend into the background, avoid attention, and minimize emotional ties, all in an effort to keep herself from lashing out psychically. But everything changes when Sarah is invited to attend exclusive Delhart Academy, an “invitation only” private school surrounded by tall gates and an air of mystery. First, she catches the eye of god-like Student Recruiter Eric Sanders. Then there’s sexy Garrett Landry, a loner with a tattoo and an attitude the size of Mount Rainier. Garrett plays on Dancia’s deepest fears when he suggests that there’s something nefarious going on at Delhart, and Eric is playing an integral part.
Eventually, Sarah will be forced to take sides in the most difficult struggle she has ever faced. Should she trust Eric, or Garrett? Must she follow the rules, or her own instincts for what is right and wrong? And perhaps most importantly, can she learn to believe in her talent, or will she always be fighting with a piece of herself?
A little about me, I am an active member of the Romance Writers of America and a former Golden Heart Finalist. I am also an attorney, mom to two fabulous kids, and very slow triathlete.
Thank you for your time. I would welcome an email or phone call if you are interested in seeing more of Running Blind. I look forward to hearing from you.
