I attended University of New Haven, where I initially studied Forensic Science. After two years I came to the realization that, despite my love for titrations (and saying “phenolphthalein”), I could not possibly spend the rest of my life staring at the color pink (the most vile color in all the world) and I would much rather read The Crucible than ever have to handle one again. I made my escape to the English department, where waiting for me were a plethora of musty tomes and a comforting absence of fire.
For five years I interned with various local CT publications in both an editorial and design capacity until finally I found a place with Talcott Notch. In January 2013, I began taking on my own clients.
Genres I represent:
Adult: commercial fiction, sci fi and fantasy (and all the little sub genres), psychological thrillers (fewer Navy SEALS and more Gillian Flynn), cozy mysteries, romance, and erotic romance.
Young Adult: All genres.
I am not currently accepting queries for middle grade or picture books. YA and above only, please.
An updated wishlist and detailed query guidelines can be found on my blog: JessNegron.blogspot.net
Some of my favorite authors are Juliet Marillier, Thomas Berger, Jane Austen, Garth Nix, Tamora Pierce, and Chuck Palahniuk. I admire these writers for their shared gifts to establish profound connections with readers through their characters; to build worlds that make my wander-lusting heart ache with longing; and, most of all, to make me consider, question, and reevaluate the pleasures I so often take for granted.
Among my indulgences are roses, breakfast at odd hours, learning useless trivia, video games, witty web comics, movies, and (of course) books.
