I’m so excited to feature Brianna DuMont this month! I first learned of Brianna through our rock star agent, Carrie Pestritto of Prospect Agency. I was not only super impressed with Brianna’s forthcoming Middle Grade book, Famous Phonies: Legends, Fakes, and Frauds Who Changed History (Sky Pony Press, October 2014), the first book in The Changed History Series, but also that she and I both live in Chicago!
After corresponding through social media, we finally met this week at my book launch party. She and her husband Tim (another writer!) came to my event at Sandmeyer’s Bookstore and joined friends and family for dinner afterwards. It was great to talk in person and share publishing stories. Our paths to publication were so similar even though we write different genres.
You can read more about Brianna on her website. Her second book, Fugitives Who Changed History (Sky Pony Press), will be out in the Fall of 2015.
