Eaton Literary Agency announces the publication of TWO IF BY SEA by Rick McCann

TWO IF BY SEA by Richard McCann is an exciting maritime thriller. Drug cartels devised a way to affix nearly undetectable containers to ships’ hulls. International terrorists thwarted their plans and began using the containers to smuggle nuclear waste, to use in constructing dirty bombs. A hurricane, international terrorism, and a budding relationship all complicate the life of the Captain of the Palm Princess.

“I highly recommend TWO IF BY SEA by Richard McCann. Beginning with a young woman pursuing her life’s dream, and achieving it, the plot grows, encompassing a hurricane, drug smugglers, and international terrorism. This edge-of-your-seat plot will keep you guessing throughout to the thrilling conclusion. Be sure to read this exciting adventure!” Larry Parr

Eaton Literary Agency announces the publication of the novel, WAKE, by John Hubbard

That powerhouse literary agency, Eaton Literary Agency, announces the publication of the novel WAKE by their client, John Hubbard.

Psychopharmacologist Dr. Dao Lin stole a research drug named The Wake Formula from brilliant nueropsychiatrist Dr. Frederick Burus and left him for dead. Dr. Lin used the Wake Formula to accelerate the careers of an elite group of clients he calls the Society of Wake. From those clients, he gains enormous wealth and power, with the aim of being the supreme leader of a global empire. Agent Warren, Miles, and a few others risk everything in a dangerous attempt to topple Dr. Lin’s ruthless quest for world domination and save the lives of those who have become captive to the Wake Formula.


“The premise of the exciting new novel, WAKE, by John Hubbard, is based on the addiction of an elite group of people, who, thanks to a new drug, no longer need sleep, so they are able to accomplish an astonishing amount of work. Unfortunately, this elitism leads to one dangerous man, who controls the drug, seeking world dominance. Trying to stop the man and his dangerous drug, before it is too late, is the exciting premise of this wonderful novel. I highly recommend it for its author’s rich imagination and ability to draw the reader in until the very exciting climax. Five stars!” Larry Parr

Eaton Literary Agency announces the publication of THE ZERO CONUNDRUM by John Duby

The powerhouse literary agency, Eaton Literary Agency, announces the publication of THE ZERO CONUNDRUM by John Duby.

THE ZERO CONUNDRUM: A Serial Murder Mystery

by John Duby

A series of gruesome torture murders by an extremely intelligent and wily serial murderer seems impossible to solve. The murders occur all across the country, and the murderer is careful to leave behind no clues. But when the murderer threatens the love of his life, Special FBI Agent Jack Garvey must solve the crime before it is too late. This clash leads to an action-filled climax between two highly motivated and intelligent forces.


“In THE ZERO CONUNDRUM, retired legal professional Mr. John Duby draws on his knowledge of law to create one of the best page turners I have ever read. Facing seemingly impossible odds to solve the murders perpetuated by a very intelligent serial murderer, Special FBI Agent Jack Garvey must solve the case or lose the woman he loves. I could not figure out how this riveting book would end, but it certainly kept me reading to the thrilling and satisfying climax. Highly recommended.” Larry Parr –This text refers to the paperback edition.

“I wanted to take some time out of my busy schedule between book tours to thank you again for all your hard work in placing my three books and many articles.  I can’t believe the success that has come to me because of your efforts, and I know it would never have happened if I hadn’t found you.  Thank you for your guidance and for beginning my career.”  J.

“We’re so impressed with all the help we have gotten from you – first your prestigious award, then with the publication of our nonfiction book.   This award and publication is so appreciated, and it comes at a time when being published is more and more difficult without the right representation.”  Jennifer Levasseur, Kevin Rabalais, NOVEL VOICES and THE LANDSCAPE OF DESIRE.

This may be your chance to not only win a prize but to be represented by a literary agent to publishers. One of their many successful clients has this to say about Eaton Literary Agency:

When a first-time author first engages with a potential new literary agent or agency, it is with caution and even a bit of skepticism.  Certainly, in my case, that was true. Let me tell you what I have learned about Eaton Literary and Richard Lawrence:

  • Everything I was told was true and it was done.
  • Eaton Lit has true integrity.
  • My first novel is now under contract for publication.
  • The guidance I received, from editing forward was outstanding.
  • Mr. Richard Lawrence’s patience with me made the experience comfortable.
  • Have confidence in Eaton Lit.  You will find it justified.

It is no wonder that Eaton Lit has won so many awards.  They are deserved.



Short Stories from a Long Life

Pitzer College Class of 1968 alumna Margreta Klassen publishes stories in a new anthology

Margreta Klassen ’68 has written three of the 20 tales collected in Twenty of Today’s Best Short Stories, an anthology of fiction and nonfiction stories, recently published by Commonwealth Books. Klassen’s stories are titled “The Grand Stand,” “Local Celebrity,” and “A Fishy Tale.”

An internationally recognized clinical psychologist, Klassen has also written a book of poetry and her memoir, Soul Stealing: Abuse of Intimate Power, was published by Black Rose Writing in 2017.

Klassen transferred to Pitzer from Chaffey Community College in 1966. Known then as Maggi Dunn, she had worked as a journalist with the Riverside Press-Enterprise and was in her 30s when she arrived at Pitzer. As her classmate and Pitzer trustee Louise Beaudette Thornton ’68 says, “Maggi was a Pitzer New Resources student before there was a Pitzer New Resources program,” referring to a program for students 23 years of age or older that Pitzer established in 1974.

A member of Pitzer’s charter Class of 1968 (the first four-year class to graduate from the then all-women’s college), Klassen took a class with the folk musician Guy Carawan, then Pitzer’s Folklorist-in-Residence, who is known for introducing the song “We Shall Overcome” to the Civil Rights Movement. She credits Professor Esther Wagner with honing her writing skills. She studied art with Professor Carl Hertel, and Professors Lew Ellenhorn and Alfonso Ortiz inspired her interest in psychology and anthropology. More than 50 years later, she still has a paper, titled “Sacred Clowns of the Southwest,” that she wrote for a class she took with Ortiz.  

Klassen earned her BA at Pitzer in English and planned to become a science writer.  After Pitzer, she received a PhD from Claremont Graduate University in educational studies with a focus on life-span development psychology.

“I especially appreciated the fine faculty and small classes at Pitzer and the graduate university,” Klassen wrote in her submission to the Pitzer College Class of 1968 50th Anniversary Reunion Lookbook.

Over many decades, she has worked as a staff therapist for several colleges, taught courses in human sexuality, and was a program director at a nonprofit agency. Klassen practiced as a clinical, counseling, and adult development psychologist in Newport Beach, CA, retiring a few years ago when she turned 90. She is listed in Who’s Who in American WomenWho’s Who in the World, and on the National Women’s History Museum site, Chronicles of American Women.

Today, Klassen keeps in touch with her Pitzer classmates as an active member of the Pitzer OC Book Gathering—a group of 11 alumnae from the classes of 1968 and 1969 who have been meeting to discuss books and life since the 1980s.   

“Being true to Pitzer’s values, I have been a ‘participant’ throughout my long life,” Klassen wrote in her Class of 1968 Lookbook submission.
