Kathie Bennett is first and foremost a passionate reader. So it came as no surprise when Kathie, a successful community fundraiser who has spearheaded many philanthropic efforts throughout the South, founded Magic Time Literary Agency in 2008. It was her way of responding to the need she perceived within the publishing arena, and ensuring that her favorite authors could afford to continue to write. With the encouragement of bestselling authors, Kathie discovered her mission: to be an Author Advocate. “Their success is my success,” says Bennett. As a champion of books, Magic Time will provide services as a publicist and booking agent–securing speaking engagements for academic, corporate and non-profit arenas.
