Hi, I’m Jennie. I’m a literary agent, writer, book blogger, recovering lawyer, intrepid book club leader, decent roller-skater, and spreadsheet-addict from San Francisco. I primarily represent and write about young adult/middle grade books; I am a “full-time” contributor/editor at Forever Young Adult. My writing has also appeared on Birth.Movies.Death. (formerly Badass Digest), in Shipwreck, and I am slowly-but-surely researching and writing my own historical fiction novels set in San Francisco. (Maybe they will see the light of day, maybe they won’t.)
In addition to book reviews, I recap Outlander, create themed recipes for food and cocktails, and am the editor for a writing group feature which includes guest posts from published YA authors and editors. I have also covered red carpet events, conferences, and festivals.
My main historical interests are medieval European history (I wrote my senior thesis on death and resurrection symbolism in transi tombs, alchemy, torture, and execution) and San Francisco history. I’m also well-versed in food, craft beer/spirits/cocktails, San Francisco culture, travel, and law. If you need some freelance writing, please feel free to contact me; if you’re looking to figure out what kind of manuscripts might spark my interest, visit this page.
