Something disappointing happened to me today:
I learned that my European agent is a thief and a liar.
Iza Garztecka, proprietor of Helfa Literary Agency, sold translation rights to my novel to a Polish publisher.
In October 2005 she took the money on my behalf and lied for over a year that Publisher did not pay.
Then she closed shop, even went so far as sending me information through a third person saying that she died… along with all her debts. It was, of course, a lie.
Iza Garztecka robbed me. She is a thief.
Contact me if you are an author, agent or a publisher and want more information or have been robbed by her too.
Be aware of this cheat.
