This writer is looking for an agent.
I am 69 years old and while I never pursued a career in writing I have always had a natural ability to write. I love poetry and have written numerous poems over the past few years and copyrighted one of them. I just recently wrote my first book titled "The Survivors" and am looking for an agent to help get it published. I have received favorable comments from the few friends I have shared it with and had it copyrighted. In my professional career I have worked for Delta Airlines in customer service for many years. Following that I was a police officer, a private detective, an insurance agent, a car salesman, security guard and an ATT DSL tech support supervisor. I retired permanently in 2011 to take care of my father in his final year of life and in 2012 moved to Ecuador with my wife. We lived on the beach there for a little over 3 years before coming to Florida where we currently reside. As I said, I am new to the writing business but hope an agent will take the time to look at my first effort and find it worthy of publication.
