Jennifer represents projects ranging from picture books to YA. Middle grade is her soft spot and she’s open to all genres in this category, from literary and layered to light-hearted. She is especially interested in fresh and distinct voices; stories that simultaneously tug at her heartstrings and make her laugh out loud; and “adorkable” heroes. As for YA, Jennifer is drawn to powerful, smart stories; funny or cringe-worthy romance; and urban fantasy with big developed worlds. In terms of picture books, she is interested in fun, character-driven projects; beautifully written stories; and milestone moments. Jennifer also represents illustrators and author-illustrators.
