Jessica represents a range of fiction and non-fiction, from fun pop culture, popular science, history, and psychology, to contemporary literary memoirs and graphic novels. She is always looking for work from compelling and underserved voices that focuses on strong characters and interesting worlds, including commercial and literary fiction, historical fiction, and fiction that balances on the edge of genre—especially science fiction and fantasy. She loves fresh stories about magic, family, everyday people doing extraordinary things, and unforgettable places.
Jessica grew up in Massachusetts, received her BAs in English and French from Syracuse University, and completed her MFA in Writing at The California Institute of the Arts. After working in Los Angeles for the literary magazine Black Clock and with Betsy Amster Literary Enterprises, Jessica moved to New York and began working at Foundry Literary + Media in 2015, where she is actively building her list.
