if it’s too difficult for grown-ups, write for children

SOLD! Congratulations to Merrill Wyatt!

Please help us congratulate author Merrill Wyatt on the sale of her middle grade mystery, TANGLED UP IN LUCK, to Kate Prosswimmer at Margaret K. McElderry Books/S&S.

From Publisher’s Weekly:

Kate Prosswimmer at S&S/McElderry has bought Tangled Up in Luck by Merrill Wyatt (Ernestine, Catastrophe Queen). The contemporary middle grade novel follows two sworn enemies who are forced to work together on a school project and tangle not only with eccentric residents of their small mid-western town but their feelings about each other, as they embark on an adventure to unravel the 100-year-old mystery behind missing family jewels. Publication is slated for fall 2021; Hilary Harwell at KT Literary did the deal for world rights.

Don’t forget to check out Merrill’s previously published book, ERNESTINE, CATASTROPHE QUEEN from Jimmy Patterson Books, too.
