I had not heard from Pauline for almost a month. That was unusual. The Society of Authors suggested I send an ultimatum requesting a response within 2 weeks or our contract would be terminated. I posted that letter last Friday. Then at 23 hrs on Friday, I received an e-mail from The Netherlands. It informed me that Pauline Vilain my Literary Agent died on 30th April.
Rest in Peace Pauline and thank you.
Now I must find a new Literary Agent. Enquiries welcomed.
