We’re riding high since adding Emma Teal Laukitis and Claire Neaton, aka THE SALMON SISTERS to Transatlantic’s client roster. These two young women have already lived a life dreams are made of and there’s so much more for them on the horizon. Having grown up on one of the world’s most unique and remote places — the Aleutian Islands of Alaska, they still work on their family’s boats commercial fishing for salmon and halibut in the Bering Sea.
Their love of life at sea and their deep respect for the ocean is apparent in everything they do. When they’re not fishing, they’re designing original sea inspired clothing, home goods and adventure gear for use on and off the water, marketing Wild Alaska seafood, supporting their Give Fish Project, writing, cooking, and generally advancing awareness about the importance of sustainable fisheries and the role of wild sustainable seafood in our food chain. These bold seafaring young women are two of the world’s most natural advocates for the vitality of a fisherman’s livelihood, and we are proud to represent them and their future writing and publishing endeavors.

Sheila Hamilton’s ALL THE THINGS WE NEVER KNEW is a prime candidate for the screen, and we’re honored to represent the film rights.
Originally released in hard cover by Seal Press, this highly dramatic and timely memoir chronicles the rising career of an Emmy award winning journalist and reporter who — in spite of her skills in investigation and observation — still missed the signs that her beloved, brilliant husband’s life was spiraling out of control due to a misdiagnosed and mistreated bipolar disorder.
ALL THE THINGS WE NEVER KNEW was a Booklist Starred Review recipient, nominee for the 2017 Oregon Book Awards, an Gold Medallion winner of a 2016 Independent Publisher Book Award. Mass release edition coming May, 2017.
The warmest welcome to you, Sheila. We’re proud and humbled to be working with you.

I truly appreciate enthusiastic reader reviews. If you appreciate deep characters, a touch of real life, and a well crafted but surprising happily-ever-after, don’t take it from me: read what Elizabeth H. has to say about two-time RITA winner, Wendy Warren’s latest Harlequin SE romance:
“KISS ME, SHERIFF is a beautifully fragile love story that will well your tears and warm your heart! The story was magical, the romance, heartbreakingly beautiful. I had tears streaming down my face more than once! And it’s not just a romance. It’s about learning to love in all forms. It’s about taking chances.”
