GumboWriters: Sample Query Letter that Worked #31


Her story has appeared on Lou Dobbs, Univision, CNN, Paula Zahn, NPR and motion picture executives from every major studio have approached her to tell her story. The New York Times and the biggest media in the world have been begging for an interview with her for an inside look into the life she lives.  This life that has left her under the care of the U.S. government, running for her life and living in hiding.


Her name is Paca Rodriguez  and she is the 22-year-old daughter of the biggest Mexican mafia family in the world.  Their $300 million a year organization has been secretly operating  in the United States for over 17 years. It has provided what is known as paper weapons used in aiding terrorists who wish to cause havoc.


Growing up in an environment where killing your closest friend or relative to protect your business was the norm, 22-year-old Paca always dreamed of a better life Karen. A life where she could live freely and with good heart and good conscience.  It was that good heart and conscience that gave her the strength to step forward and work with U.S. intelligence agents to not only identify key family members that were part of the organization but to go on trial and face them once again.


 She has been spilling secrets only she knows first-hand in order to end the killing and hopefully assist Homeland Security in cracking down on the terrorism threat her family poses.  This year when the government trials begin there will be an onslaught of  more media attention surrounding Paca's story.


Only until now has she decided to step forward and tell her true story in her own words in book form. Karen I am her husband, and we are looking for literary representation.
