JESSICA SCHMEIDLER, FOUNDING LITERARY AGENT DBA Golden Wheat Literary 

Jessica's tastes are eclectic in genre and readership, but she consistently favors character driven plot with rich, atmospheric description. She is currently in the mood for:

  • Middle Grade: adventure stories (of any genre) and historical fiction that resonates with the present

  • Young Adult: dark or light, contemporary or historical, but with literary elements and/or a touch of magical realism

  • Women's Fiction or non-category romance

  • Adult: Thrillers/Suspense, Literary Fiction, and General Fiction

  • Nonfiction: survival or journey memoirs, running (or other discipline-focused) devotionals, and something with a contemporary "victory garden" 

*Both Secular and/or Christian themes welcome.
