Roll Call’s Heil on the Hunt for an Agent

EmilyH007_052910.jpg Guess who got the memo about writing what you know? Roll Call gossip scribe Emily Heil has penned a novel about… a young gossip columnist in Washington. (Hmmm…who might that be?)

FishbowlDC hears that Heil, who writes the HOH column, is now on the hunt for an agent. We wondered how much life imitates art. Should Capitol Hill women be petrified? Heil said she drew on her experiences (and a few thinly-veiled characters) in writing the book, which she calls a “chick-lit thriller,” about a reporter who uncovers a secret society of women who are stealthily running Washington.

The working title is: “The Ferragamo Conspiracy.”

Heil notes the healing quality of writing the book, which she has completed. “Plenty of it is pure fiction, but it was great to have an outlet for all those off-the-record stories I’ve heard over the years,” she tells FishbowlDC. “Of course, names have been changed to protect the guilty.”

So. Any agents out there want to bite?
