Dear Agent for a Day,
A hard-driving VP at OmniGlobe Entertainment comes up with a bold strategy to form the most lucrative band in the world—a children’s band. For rock and roll talent scout Chandra West, that means auditioning hopefuls for the reality show “Children’s Superstar,” and promising to revive her childhood idol’s career after the VP muscles him out. But first she has to manage the new band, whose handsome lead singer is surprisingly talented. Unfortunately, one of his talents is rebellion.
From L.A. boardrooms to Asia and ValueVille, Missouri, THE KNOCK-OFFS (commercial fiction, 103,000 words) is a satiric riff on children’s music, greedy corporations, and the challenge of earning a living without selling your soul.
When I was a journalist, my work appeared over 200 times in newspapers and magazines such as Portland Monthly and Forbes ASAP. I’m also the co-author of an academic book, Super-Patriots in America: A Century of Growing Influence (Hollowbrook Press, 1995).
Thanks for considering this project, and I look forward to hearing from you.
