About the Author
Sandra O'Donnell is a founding partner of RO Literary. She's been actively involved in the writing community and publishing for over twenty years. Sandra studied writing at the graduate level at the University of Utah while working on her master's. While there, she taught writing in the University Writing Program and learned as much from teaching as she did from her classes. After Utah, Sandra went on to ghostwrite, edit and co-author a number of books for the academic market. She also earned her Ph.D. in History from Arizona State. In 1996, she and a partner formed Snowgoose Cove a boutique publishing company. As a publisher, Sandra learned what it takes to make a title successful by guiding authors through the editing, launch, and marketing of their books. Sandra is also a seasoned book coach, working with authors to take them from draft to polished manuscript. Before becoming an agent, many of the authors she's worked with went on to find excellent agents, editors, and publishers. However, many projects languished once they have left her charge. Frustrated authors asked her time and again why Sandra couldn't guide them through the next stage with the love and care she'd used shown during the development phase of their books. After much consideration and discussion with her partner Laura Rothschild, RO Literary was formed. Reading query after query over the past few years has given her keen insight into the stories that work and those that fall short. She began to see patterns and those patterns lead to the formation of the advice and strategy at the heart of her book, Your First Fifteen Pages.
