3 New Agents Actively Seeking Mysteries, Fantasy, Romance, YA & MG, Nonfiction and More

Here are three new agents seeking clients. Jennie Kendrick is interested in YA and MG fiction, particularly Own Voices works. Sandra Jordan represents mysteries exclusively. Whitney Ross represents middle grade, young adult, and adult fiction across all genres, with an emphasis on historical, SF & fantasy, romance, and contemporary fiction. She is also open to non-fiction submissions in the areas of design, cooking, and fashion.

ALWAYS check the agency website before submitting. Agents may switch agencies or close their lists, and submission requirements may change.

If these agents do not suit your needs, you can find a comprehensive list of new and established agents seeking clients here: Agents Seeking Clients.



Jennie Kendrick at Lupine Creative

Jennie Kendrick is a former criminal defense attorney, history major, and continues to be a lifelong reader.  She began writing for Forever Young Adult, a popular review site for YA fans who are “a little less Y and a little more A” in 2013, and became an editor in early 2014. Her work with Forever Young Adult has included a review partnership with Kirkus books, travel to Book Expo of America, YALLFest and YALLWest, social media management, a podcast, and close work with many publicists and YA authors. She was a judge for the 2017 Elephant Rock Books Helen Sheehan YA publishing competition, is a part-time bookseller at The Booksmith in San Francisco, and leads the San Francisco chapter of the international Forever Young Adult book club. Her writing has appeared in Birth.Movies.Death., and Shipwreck, a humorous San Francisco literary competition.

What she is seeking: Jennie Kendrick is looking for well-researched, character-driven YA and MG fiction, particularly Own Voices works. She is particularly fond of historical fiction, paranormal fiction, classic 90s teen horror, and magical realism, but will gladly accept submissions from all YA/MG genres.

How to submit:  Please submit your query along with the first 10-15 pages of your manuscript.

She is accepting submissions immediately at: submissions@lupinegrove.com





Sandra is an author and editor and now consultant and first reader for Nancy Gallt Mysteries. To submit your work, please send one attachment that includes a brief cover letter, a one-page outline of the book and 50 double-spaced pages of the finished manuscript (remember that it must be a mystery, as described above, written for adults).

Email submissions and queries: sandra@nancygallt.com



Whitney Ross of Irene Goodman

Before joining Irene Goodman in 2018, Whitney Ross worked as an editor at Macmillan for nearly a decade, culminating in her role as a senior editor for Tor Teen, Tor, and Forge. Over the course of her career, Whitney has had the pleasure of editing many talented authors, including Susan Dennard, Cora Carmack, Eric Van Lustbader, Steven Erikson, Katie McGarry, Ann Aguirre, Dan Wells, and Stacey Kade.

What she is seeking: Whitney represents middle grade, young adult, and adult fiction across all genres, with an emphasis on historical, SF & fantasy, romance, and contemporary fiction. She is also open to non-fiction submissions in the areas of design, cooking, and fashion.

Whitney loves to read novels set in unusual time periods and locations, whether that involves a fantastical element or not. She is rarely able to resist the trickster king motif, and has a weakness for read-between-the-lines subtle romances. Yet she's constantly surprised by books not on her "wish list," and is always open to stories with compelling characters and emotionally involving plotlines.

How to submit: Email a query letter and the first ten pages, along with a synopsis (3-5 paragraphs) and bio, in the body of an email to whitney.queries@irenegoodman.com.
