I met Martha Alderson, AKA PLOT WHISPERER, at an SCBWI Retreat where we both spoke. Her easy-to-understand, unbelievably helpful talk on HOW TO PLOT won me over. When I found out she was looking for an agent for her non-fiction PLOT books as well as her Middle Grade Novel, I was thrilled. Not only is Martha an amazing person--very Zen is how I would best describe her, but I am a huge fan of her plot teachings and of her writing.
