A top Hollywood agent came talent spotting at the Lake Chapala Writers’ 12th annual three day conference, held in Ajijic’s Danza del Sol Hotel, last week.
Ken Sherman, with a longstanding track record in Los Angeles represents a host of aspiring and established authors, to show case before movie makers, the TV networks and book publishers. He topped the bill of star studded guest speakers.

Other big names in their fields, include local bestselling mystery author Rachel McMillen, practical publishing marketing and social media guru an author of 35 books, Dr. Judith Briles, who flew in from Aurora, Colorado, Dr.Michael Hogan, prolific author and historian now of Guadalajara, whose recent bestselling history title, is‘Abraham Lincoln in Mexico’, leading New York City editor now local, Sandi Gelles – Cole, author of ‘The Memoir of Marilyn Monroe’, who focused on her former experience working with big name authors in the big city's publishing world, plus consultant and rising star book marketeer, Mikel Miller, of Guadalajara.

‘To grab Hollywood’s attention, does credit to the phenomenal level of talent at Lakeside ’, said Ajijic writer and the conference’s committee member for the last seven years, Victoria Schmidt.

The 50 strong audiences comprised new hopefuls and seasoned authors, some with as many four or more titles already to their names.

“I was formerly in Hollywood scene setting for the Academy Awards for many years. I told delegates, to whom we offered a once in a lifetime chance for ten minutes in front of one of Hollywood’s main players, ‘When tinsel town smiles you had better be raring to go
ready,’ ’’said Conference Coordinator, Herbert Piekow.
