Jenny Herrera

Jenny joined the David Black Agency in 2015 after working at Fletcher & Company and Europa Editions, where she was an early advocate of Elena Ferrante. She went to college in Ohio, where she studied Philosophy, French, and Russian, and has master’s degrees in Philosophy and Social Sciences. She loves reading non-fiction books about big ideas and fiction that is thoughtful, unselfconscious, and authentic. She is actively looking for submissions in upmarket fiction, serious nonfiction, young adult, middle grade, and thrillers, as well as any book that breaks the mold. Recent books she loves include: An Ember in the Ashes, Sweet Bitter, The Hate U Give, My Life on the Road, Strange the Dreamer, Far From the Tree, If We Were Villains, and many many more. She perhaps consumes excessive amounts of coffee. You can query Jenny by emailing her your letter and the first five pages of your manuscript or proposal (no attachments please) to:
