Tamela Hancock Murray Named Agent-of-the-Year

We are very excited to announce that during the recent ACFW (American Christan Fiction Writers) annual event, Tamela was named Agent-of-the-Year! ACFW has the largest gathering of Christan fiction authors in the country.

I can personally attest to Tamela’s abilities and her success. She is an extremely hard worker who loves her clients and her job. There are few in this industry who can match her understanding of the Christian romance genre. I am so proud to have her as part of our agency.

Join me in giving her hearty congratulations!

    Congratulations, Tamela! Your warmth brightens the room! At ACFW this weekend, Jessica Cortes and I were so nervous prior to our first pitches and you took that anxiety away as we fawned over kitten heels and lavender pumps! I also know that my first timer friends who were able to pitch to you were so encouraged afterwards!
