Jenny joined Andrew Nurnberg Associates in 2002 as part time PA to the Managing Director. At that point she had no idea what a literary agent did. Sixteen years later, with a successful list of authors under her belt, many of them award-wining, she is a Director of the agency, placing books in the UK and US markets. She represents children’s and young adult fiction; also literary fiction, commercial and literary women’s fiction, psychological suspense, historical fiction, comic fiction, 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.
