NEW!

Jenn is now open to picture books and chapter books. She is also open to considering author-illustrators and illustrators.

Updated April 2021

I am currently building a diverse list of authors and illustrators. I represent picture books, chapter books, middle grade, young adult, and adult genre fiction. No matter the genre or age group, I am looking for books that make feel (whether it’s laugh or cry or both!), distinctive voices, and character-driven stories that revolve around tough issues.

Picture Book:

I am looking for heartfelt, funny, whimsical picture books that can revolve around big kid issues such as grief, bullying, bein g different, friends, etc. I especially love clever or new concepts or fresh twists on classics and STEAM concepts in a contemporary or fantasy world.

Middle Grade:

I am looking for high concept MG with a great hook. While I love adventurous, smart, out-of-the-box characters with schemes, friends, family, living and processing through a life crisis, I am also drawn to quiet characters and quiet topics like a first crush. Send me books on friend breakups, frenemies, or enemies. I love to laugh and cry while I fall in love the characters.

Genres:

  • Contemporary
  • Paranormal/Fantasy – ghosts, witches, fresh mythology, superheroes
  • Horror
  • Mystery
  • Graphic novel

Young Adult:

I am looking for unique concepts or a fresh twist on classic tropes or tales. High concept YA with a strong hook. 

Genres:

  • Feel-good contemporaries or contemporaries that represent real world issues
  • Contemporary romance (love tropes!)
  • Paranormal or fantasy with strong world building. I especially love mythologies that haven’t been explored. Give me a twist on ghosts, witches, vamps, shifters, or superheroes.
  • Snort-worthy romantic comedy
  • Mystery
  • Horror – prefer scary versus bloody
  • Graphic novel

Adult Fiction:

I am looking for out-of-the-ordinary plots with engaging and realistic characters trying to navigate the adult world.

Genres:

  • Romance with a fresh twist on trope-driven plots. Sweet to spicy. 
  • I am open to contemporary, paranormal, and fantasy romance.
  • Gut-busting RomCom
  • Women’s Fiction
  • Fresh cozy mysteries (think outside-the-box amateur sleuths)
  • Graphic novel

Currently, I am not a good fit for:

 

  • Thriller
  • Suspense
  • Murder mystery
  • Political
  • High fantasy
  • Sci-Fi
  • Adult horror
  • Historical
  • Nonfiction
