Two "Who Reps Who" Stumpers!
« on: March 16, 2008, 01:19:50 PM »
I googled and googled.  The reason I can't find the answer, amid a flurry of search engine hits, is that both authors write mysteries.  So all the google hits include-- you guessed it-- the word "agent" in terms of "special agent" or "secret agent."  Not literary agent.

So does anybody know who reps the following two? 

Twist Phelan
Richard Aleas

Thanks!

Karma and thanks to you, gypsy.  I don't a have PMP subscription, and he is definitely a novelist.  The bottom part is the hit I was looking for, at Trident.  Thanks again!
