Jenny represents authors of fiction and non-fiction writing for both children and adults.
Following an MA in Mediaeval History at St Andrews, and a stint in the theatre, Jenny joined Andrew Nurnberg Associates in 2002 and is now a Senior agent for the UK and US markets. A lifelong love of children’s books has led her to build a strong and respected list of children’s and YA authors, many of whom have been nominated for, and have won, awards.
Always keen to find new voices in 7+, Middle Grade and Young Adult writing, Jenny also represents an increasing number of authors writing for adults. She is on the look-out for writers of both commercial and literary women’s fiction, well-written thrillers and psychological suspense, historical fiction (the whole gamut – including alternate histories), memoir and narrative non-fiction. High fantasy is not her thing, though she is partial to a story with a slight, speculative thread running through it. She welcomes originality, depth, and the ability to move and surprise in submissions.
