I just got an email from my alma mater, Mills College. Carolina de Robertis has sold her first novel to Knopf (other publishers were vying for her manuscript as well).

Carolina entered the graduate program during my second year. She was an IMMENSE help to me setting up for the bi-weekly author readings for the Place for Writers.

This makes the third Mills woman I know to graduate and sell her novel, alongside classmates Laleh Khadivi and Nina LaCour.

I'm so proud to have shared some class/work/leisure time with these fabulous writers!

I'm inspired and know there will be more good news in the months and years to come!
