You are querying Joanna MacKenzie | Nelson Literary Agency
As a reminder, please choose only one agent at Nelson Literary to query per project as we do actually share queries with each other. A pass from one agent is a pass from all of us for that particular project.
Joanna is seeking:
• Character-driven and atmospheric mysteries and thrillers—think Tana French, Blake Crouch, and Heather Gudenkauf.
• Literary fiction—fish-out-of-water experiences, immigrant stories, complex families. I cried my way through The Namesake and couldn’t put down The Round House.
• Upmarket women’s fiction featuring characters I can’t stop thinking about.
• Literary and commercial young-adult fiction—I’ll Give You The Sun and Bone Gap and anything that reminds me of Veronica Mars.
