Jessica joined The Dijkstra Agency in 2013.
A graduate of the University of California at Irvine, Jessica is a lifelong book lover and former indie book reviewer.
Jessica is always on the hunt for new and diverse projects, and is most interested in all genres of romance. She's drawn to fun, fresh voices, and character driven stories that keep a reader turning the page needing to know what happens next. Independent heroines are a must, in addition to well realized heroes who aren't alpha-holes.
She also loves Women’s Fiction that concerns itself with elements of life that can greatly change one’s perspective and outlook on cultures and experiences.
Jessica is also open to select Cozy Mysteries that feature fun and independent heroines that can take what life throws at them with aplomb and a bit of humor.
On the YA side, she is looking for just about anything in the contemporary sphere, and of course a bit of romance thrown in is never a bad thing in her opinion. She is also interested in select author illustrated picture books that capture the fun and joy of reading between adults and children.
In the non-fiction realm, Jessica is solely open to Pop Culture projects for authors who have established platforms.
Jessica is priveledged to represent many amazing clients, including: Elena Armas, Alexa Martin, Kristin Rockaway, Angie Hockman, Rosie Danan, Izzy the Frenchie, Lillie Vale, and many other amazing writers.
Please note that Jessica is specifically not interested in: non-fiction outside of pop culture, memoir, cookbooks, poetry, short stories, screenplays, self-help, or religious/spiritual books.
