Update 8/20/2009: Michael Stearns
has left Firebrand and Firebrand has
closed. Michael Stearns founded a
new agency called Upstart Crow.
His interview is still great, though.
My great co-worker, Alice Pope, recently posted her interview with super-editor turned Firebrand Literary rep Michael Stearns. See the entire interview on her Children's Writer's & Illustrator's Market blog.
The interview has a lot of good advice from a new agent. Check it out, and way to go, Alice!
