The musings of literary agent Laurie McLean

Berkley Buys Olivia Mayfield Mystery at Auction!

Written By: laurie - Feb• 05•13

A big WHOOP-WHOOP goes out to my client Olivia Mayfield (aka writer/editor Rhonda Helms) for her new Berkley/Penguin contemporary romantic mystery THE INHERITANCE in serial format. We sold it at auction to Leis Pederson of Berkley, an imprint of Penguin, for release later this year. Here’s the Publishers Marketplace listing:

THE INHERITANCE by Olivia Mayfield is a contemporary romance told in serial format, where siblings, the widow, and the ex-flame gather for a funeral only to discover that they must compete for the deceased’s $10 million inheritance by solving a cold case. Sold at auction to Leis Pederson of Berkley/Penguin by Laurie McLean, Larsen Pomada Literary Agents. (world)

Congratulations, Olivia. Can’t wait to read all of it.
