A New Agent Joins Us!

We are thrilled to announce that Tamela Hancock Murray is joining The Steve Laube Agency as a new literary agent for the firm. For the last ten years she has been with the Hartline Literary Agency representing a number of successful authors.

She interned on Capitol Hill and at the U.S. Department of State before graduating with honors in Journalism from Lynchburg College in Virginia. Tamela brings significant writing expertise to the agency as an author of over twenty novels, novellas, and nonfiction works. When she’s not working as an agent Tamela spends time with her husband and their two daughters.

She will be working out of her office in Virginia, giving the agency a specific East Coast connection.

Proposals meant for Tamela can be sent to ewilson@www.stevelaube.com.

    Hi Tamela;
    I have to admit when I saw you were leaving the other agency I wondered if that meant you’d NOT be at the conference in St. Louis after all.
    I’m glad to see you’ve made this move. Blessings on your future endeavors and may God richly bless you and Steve both for this new ‘chapter’ in your professional lives.

    I’m with Lynette… this is very exciting.

    Steve, I knew you were a smart cookie when I sat in on your Indy workshop and this proves it. 😀

    Praying that God blesses this partnership and everyone it touches.

    If you are willing to buy a house, you would have to get the loans. Furthermore, my sister commonly uses a collateral loan, which is the most fast.
