The Search Begins

The querying has begun in my quest for an agent. The star of the show, It's Coming Down! is a middle grade novel set in the early 1900s during the height of coal production in Carbon County, Utah.

This story means a lot to me. Inspired by my dad who spent hours talking with me about his experiences in the mines and living in a coal camp in Spring Canyon, I have tried to bring to light the every day life of a coal miner in the early days of mining.

I hope those who are reading my manuscript (or parts of it) are enjoying the story of Mitch and his struggle to find his place in a world from which his pa has tried to protect him.
