WORD: Journalist Allison Winn Scotch to make literary debut with Morrow imprint

Journalist Allison Winn Scotch, who writes for several popular culture and health magazines, is set to start a second career after Morrow/Avon snapped up her debut novel The Department of the Lost and Found, the author told WORD’N’BASS.com.

The Department of the Lost and Found is about an ambitious 30-year-old woman who is diagnosed with breast cancer. Surviving the disease forces her to reevaluate her life, rediscover what truly matters, and ultimately, reinvent everything about herself.

Don’t break out the tissue box, though. Rather than compose a sob story about adversity and the debilitating disease, Winn Scotch tells us, "It’s actually fairly uplifting and touching and funny all at once."

Agent Elisabeth Weed with the New York City-headquarted firm Kneerim & Williams sold The Department to Morrow/Avon editor Lucia Macro. The novel is tentatively slated for spring 2007 release, Winn Scotch said.
