Jessie Cammack is the digital rights manager for JABberwocky and is actively building her own client list. Jessie has a degree from Columbia in (mostly 19th century) English literature and (mostly 20th century) American history. While she was in college, she worked at Borders Books  and at The Overlook Press. She started at JABberwocky in fall 2009.

Jessie is seeking: epic fantasy, young adult science fiction, and literary fiction. "I rarely rep nonfiction, but if I do, it’s generally fairly serious history about a subject in which I am very interested. Recent examples I've read include Jennifer Homan’s exhaustive history of ballet, Apollo's Angels, and Kate Cambor’s rather novelistic triple biography Gilded Youth."

Query via snail mail only:
