Finally, after a good year, my first fictional series of The Rusty Years: A Remembrance of Being Young is completed. I sent my first query letter out to an agent of choice. Hopefully, the topic will be what interest her. She was looking for historical fiction, and especially, work featuring female characters, about families and friends, with unique narrative voices, I hope my story will interest her.
The Rusty Years follows three friends, Jenny Rossini, Rita Costa, and Kathleen Perry, as they come of age and begin to find their way in the world during the Great Depression in the 1930’s. Tragedy haunts the girls as they navigate complicated family dynamics, the workplace, romance, the mob, and a rapidly changing world.
I’d like to get this into a sequel. If it takes a third book, I will make it a series. I’m confident the ending will have my readers shocked. After three memoirs, Narrative Non-Fiction, and three handbooks from my writer’s workshops, I want my followers to see a lighter side of me.
I will keep you posted if a get a nibble with the query. If no interest comes, my next action will be to self-publish again but I feel so different from this story.
So my followers, and past readers hang in for an interesting, different and enjoyable saga about to unfold.
