Agent Spotlight: Michelle Grajkowski

This week's Agent Spotlight features Michelle Grajkowski of 3 Seas Literary Agency.
Status: Open to submissions.
clip_image001About: “From the moment Michelle Grajkowski first opened the doors to the 3 Seas Literary Agency in August of 2000, she has been living her dream. (What could be better than surrounding yourself with amazing authors and their exciting and imaginative books?)  Since then, her agency has sold almost 700 books to all the major publishing houses, and has grown from one agent to three! 
“Michelle’s client list includes New York Times Bestselling Authors Katie MacAlister, Cathy McDavid, Kerrelyn Sparks and C.L. Wilson. She primarily represents romance, women’s fiction, young adult and middle grade fiction along with select non-fiction projects with a terrific message.  She is currently looking for fantastic writers with a voice of their own.
“When not curled up with a great manuscript, Michelle loves to spend time with her husband, children and her two crazy puppies, who refuse to grow up.” (From the agency website)
About the Agency:

Great spotlight. I like this kind of thing for writers looking to mind a possible agent. No point querying someone you know wouldn't be a good match.
