Ten years ago this week Tamela Hancock Murray signed an agreement to become a part of our agency. Ten years!
I was honored then and remain honored that she is part of our team.
From managing dozens of fabulous authors to successfully landing hundreds of new book deals, she works tirelessly for her clients. She has written nearly 500 blog posts, trying to help each of you grow as a writer. In addition, she was deservedly named Agent of the Year by ACFW in 2017. (The above photo is from that event.)
Here’s to you, Tamela. Happy “anniversary.”

Congratulations to Tamela!! 🙂
I still remember reading your blog post after you’d joined the Steve Laube Agency (seems like it was titled “Happy to be Here”—but I’d have to go back and look, LOL).
It’s amazing how quickly a decade can pass—WOW!
Hugs from your “Birthday Twin” ! 😉
Congratulations and best wishes on your decade of service. Your blog posts are so helpful.
A gift of ready grace and wit,
a balm in her bright smile,
a place where raw beginners fit,
that marks Tamela’s style.
A channel of God’s wisdom shown
through Lo!, these passing years;
so many writers since have grown
past days of early fears
through her patient lessons
that are so freely given,
to behold a world of blessings
in writing and in living;
a steady walk in the Beatitudes,
for which we have such gratitude.
