Update

I spoke with literary agent Nancy Coffey yesterday, and it turns out she is the same lady who was an executive editor at Avon back in '76.

It was fun telling her about the letter, and what happened to the kid who received it. Probably the coolest part was that she knows who I am now, but had no idea she was the one who gave me my first shot. Now to write a long overdue thank you and send her a couple of books so she can see what she started.
