Bria Quinlan (Simply on QT) has signed with agent Kim Lionetti of BookEnds, LLC.
Every agent I spoke with referred to something from my blog. Several mentioned my serial free read. They liked seeing my voice in another context and that I could do something else. Also, I have a bio, references, tools and a timeline of my writing. Every agent came away from my blog with something we discussed.
Ridge View High is a place teeming with secrets. Amy Whalen should know, she's living one.
Shy. Introverted. Wallflower. Dreaded words, but not strong enough to describe Amy. She knows she's nothing short of invisible since her mom died. Invisible at home. Invisible at school. Sometimes, if she looks in the mirror long enough, she's invisible to herself too. Until Chris Kent – the only person she ever wanted to see her – needs her to be his girlfriend. His secret girlfriend. That's fine with her - mostly. She can stay out of the spotlight while he implements “The Plan” for getting into college: He needs to win Homecoming King and soccer team captain with the help of his very public-image girlfriend…who just happens to be the head cheer-dealer… ah, cheerleader.
The Plan is coming along just great thank you very much, until Luke Parker shows up for tryouts and sees through all Amy's defenses. To him, she isn't invisible, she's amazing and he can't figure out why she lets people ignore her and walk all over her. When Luke decides he wants Chris's spot on the team and wouldn't sneeze at the captain's jersey either, their rivalry spins out of control. It doesn't help any that he also wants the girl Chris kept hidden all summer: Amy.
Now she's trapped between the guy she's always wanted and the guy who saw her when no one else did. But who can trust guys when there's so much at stake? Now Amy's got her own plan now. She's stepping into the spotlight and choosing her king. Senior year was not supposed to be this complicated.
Secret Girlfriend is complete at 54,000 words.
With a BA in English and a Creative Writing minor and years of experience in the workforce, I've returned to my first love, writing. I'm the former Vice President of the New England RWA chapter and the Workshop Chair for the 2008 Conference.
Thank you for your time and looking at my work. I look forward to hearing from you.
