“Bad Agent Sydney is well named. She hates me because I never listen to her, and I do the opposite of everything she says. And gosh, I have a writing career. Take that, Sydney.” - Kristine Kathryn Rusch, USA Today Bestselling Author

“Me and Sydney go way back, back to when she first got a taste of tuna and turned to the dark side of being an agent. Luckily, I never followed her advice, but she still got tuna out of me.”
- USA Today Bestselling Writer Dean Wesley Smith

Meet the Author

Bad Agent Sydney is a small, chubby, calico cat, who also claims to be the world's worst literary agent. Given some of the so-called agents out there, we're not entirely sure she is telling the truth.

J. Steven York (AKA "Man-Who-Feeds-Her-Tuna) is Sydney's person, and the National Best Selling author of upwards of a dozen books (novels and non-fiction) and countless stories and magazine articles. He is married to novelist Christina F. York (who works in mystery as Christy Fifield and Christy Evans). They live on the Oregon coast with, Sydney, her enforcer cat Mr. Oz, and their very annoying cat intern, Mr. Thor.

Hilarious take on literary agents today, told through the eyes of a cat who became one of them. If you have an agent, were thinking about getting an agent, or just want to laugh out loud, this is the book for you.

Frowns angrily, mad at President Snow and all his stupid freak show puppets that are sometimes mutated beyond being a human. She closes her eyes and grabs a gun, then shoots a target dummy right through the bullseye. She was imaging the dummy as Snow. Then she fires five more shots, each onw hittig home.
