Delighted to announce that my first novel, The Age of Light, has sold to Little, Brown for publication in early 2019. It happened last week and I'm still adjusting to the idea that I'm going to be a published novelist. The entire process has been a whirlwind, led by my inimitable agent, Julie Barer at The Book Group, who shepherded me through many editor calls and handled all the shocked emails I sent her with trademark grace and aplomb. I'll be working with Judy Clain at Little, Brown and couldn't be happier about it. 

Here's the official announcement from Publishers Marketplace: 

University of Washington MFA graduate Whitney Scharer's THE AGE OF LIGHT, about Vogue model turned pioneering photographer Lee Miller and her complicated relationship with artist Man Ray, told in the interweaving timelines of bohemian 1930s Paris and war-torn Nazi Germany, to Judy Clain at Little, Brown, by Julie Barer at The Book Group (NA).

Hooray! More news coming soon...
