I'd love for you all to give a warm welcome to our next agent, Ms. Terrie Wolf!
*I figured the penguins were appropriate since it looks like CO will be stuck in winter mode through the summer months.;)
Terrie grew up on a steady diet of real-life adventure and believed until her early 30’s that days spent with explorers, treasure hunters and other adrenaline junkies was perfectly typical. Her well-developed and insatiable curiosity led her to positions within the international media and several award-winning writing and promotions teams at venues including CBS, NBC, Penguin(UK) and Hobsons Press (Cambridge University Press). The recipient of the Emmy, Queen’s Service Award (UK), La Voz y Papel (Spain), and Young Journalist of the Year, Terrie read English Literature and Cambridge, studied Creative Writing at NYU and Journalism at CU-Denver, and will tell you she’s equally proud of the “Master of Mirth” status awarded by Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus.
A series of life changing events most anyone else would have labeled “accidents” brought Terrie back to her home in Colorado and after 22 months of rehab, she joined the Anita Kushen Agency in 2009 as a Foreign Rights Specialist. Shortly thereafter, she acquired and renamed the agency.
Terrie is currently in search of your very best MG and picture/board books and believes in the necessity of well written, well presented works that touch the tender minds and hearts of young people. She especially enjoys humorous (not gross), engaging (not mean), adventurous fiction, beautifully depicted – and illustrated - picture/board books and highly expressive and entertaining nonfiction. She’s most likely to acquire the works that hold the wonderful and elusive elements of those stories told around the campfires and fishing holes of her youth. She dares you to thrill her.
