Kiki Anika (kikilon on QT) has signed with agent Maya Rock of .
I also chose junior agents over senior ones where I could. I wanted someone fresh and keen who would be ready to take some risks along the way.
Dear Ms/Mr. Agent
I am writing to you hoping to interest you in my latest project. TOTALLY COOKED is a Young Adult romance, complete at 55,000 words. Set in competitive world of high school It-girls, it is the story of one dance diva who dons an apron and braves the flames of Culinary Arts, the lamest class around, to save her fellow A-listers from eating disorder charges and ends up faking it on national TV.
Cupcakes are the new popular – not!
Venice Ng is about as Chinese as the sweet and sour pork at Number One Noodle Son, her family's take-out restaurant. She's happy working her exotic appeal as one of the Flames, a team of strictly A-list dancers at her high school. But when she is accused of causing another girl's anorexia, Venice is sentenced to a prison term in Slop n' Chop, aka Culinary Arts, and her world spins out of control.
Now this undomestic goddess has to learn how to cook like a pro. At the same time, she can't afford to miss a single step in her precarious social dance or she'll fall back into obscurity. Which means falling for Quinn the vegan troublemaker is so far out of the question she shouldn't even think about it. So why can't she stop hanging around him in cooking class?
On the flipside of the cake there's sweet, mousy Eileen, food blogger, cooking whiz and all-round good girl. But maybe she's sick of sweet and looking for spice… and Venice may be just the ticket.
They let Gossip Girl in the kitchen. Big mistake.
I have been writing fiction for about four years and my first YA novel, Enter The Parrot, is coming out from The Wild Rose Press in June of this year. Teen chick lit is my first love, especially when it shows a sassy attitude and a fresh, sparkling voice. I have a BA in Creative Writing from the University of Melbourne and have been a member of RWA and SCBWI for four years. I also write food-related articles and am a recipe developer for a vegan magazine as well as draw manga.
If TOTALLY COOKED is something you might be interested in, I will gladly send you sample chapters or the complete manuscript.
Thank you very much for your time and consideration, and I look forward to hearing from you.
