So here’s the story . . .

After drinking tons of coffee and working on my middle grade fantasy for the past year, I took the plunge and sent out a few queries.  And lo and behold, I got THE CALL.  When I told my husband, he said, “What the heck is the call?”

THE CALL was from the fabulous agent Britt Siess of Martin Literary Management, who now represents me!

And now I’m so excited to announce that my novel will be published in 2020 by Owl Hollow Press.

Publishers Marketplace Announcement:

Hannah Smith at Owl Hollow has bought middle grade novels Kiki MacAdoo and the Graveyard Ballerinas and its sequel by retired ballerina and debut author Colette Sewall. Eleven-year-old Kiki MacAdoo and her older sister go to Mount Faylinn Dance Conservatory for the summer, ignoring the brochure’s mysterious warning that “ballets come alive” in the nearby forest. But after her sister disappears, it’s up to Kiki to brave the woods and save her sister from the ghost sylphs that dance girls to their deaths. Publication is planned for summer 2020; Britt Siess at Martin Literary & Media Management negotiated the deal for North American English rights.
