Jennifer herrera

LITERARY AGENT

Jennifer Herrera 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.

Her authors have been awarded the Harriet Tubman Prize, nominated for the J. Anthony Lukas Prize, appeared on NPR’s Fresh Air, and been New York Times bestsellers. She loves reading nonfiction books about big ideas and is particularly drawn to smart, issue-driven books, especially those from journalists as well as writers with professional expertise, including science, psychology, philosophy, economics, prescriptive, lifestyle, history, and the stories of underrepresented groups.

 

Books she wishes she would have represented include: Fair Play by Eve Rodsky, Caste by Isabel Wilkerson, The Body Keeps the Score by Bessel van der Kolk, Get Good with Money by Tiffany Aliche, Lab Girl by Hope Jahren, How to Keep House While Drowning by KC Davis, Codependent No More by Melody Beattie, Gut Check by Steven Gundry, Black AF History by Michael Harriot, Say Nothing by Patrick Radden Keefe, and Doppelganger by Naomi Klein.

 

She is accepting non-fiction queries.
