Journalist Allison Winn Scotch to make literary debut with Morrow
Journalist Allison Winn Scotch,
who writes for several popular culture and health magazines, is set to
start a second career after Morrow/Avon snapped up her debut novel The Department of the Lost and Found,
the author told WORD’N’BASS.com.
The Department of the Lost and Found is about an ambitious 30-year-old
woman who is diagnosed with breast cancer. Surviving the disease forces
her to reevaluate her life, rediscover what truly matters, and
ultimately, reinvent everything about herself.
Don’t break out the tissue box, though. Rather than compose a sob story
about adversity and the debilitating disease, Winn Scotch tells us,
"It’s actually fairly uplifting and touching and funny all at once."
Agent Elisabeth Weed with the
New York City-headquarted firm Kneerim & Williams sold The
Department to Morrow/Avon editor Lucia
Macro. The novel is tentatively slated for spring 2007 release,
Winn Scotch said.
