Jemiscoe Chambers-Black

Agent, Andrea Brown Literary Agency

Jemiscoe, or Jem as she likes to be called, cannot say that reading and writing came naturally. Rather, these interests were inspired by pizza. At seven, her school offered free Pizza Hut and Shakey’s Pizza coupons as a reward for reading books, and Jem was sold. Eventually, the books held more interest than the pizza ever did. From reading, writing soon followed.

Jem was born in Washington, D.C., but now lives in Los Angeles with her husband and three kids. She spent more than a decade as an Assistant Director for film and television. In this line of work, she met a diverse group of people from all over the world, which offered inspiration for research and character.

CURRENT NEWS & MORE

I am open to the following queries as of the top of 2023. Please stay tuned for when I open more widely.

 

Adult:

  • Romance—rom com, paranormal, and contemporary

  • Upmarket—commercial plot with beautiful writing

  • Suspense/Thriller, and a cozy mystery (think Golden Girls with a dead body)

 

Illustrators:

  • Creators that illustrate any age group from picture book, chapter book, middle grade, YA, to adult

 

So my colleague, Jennifer Laughran, invited me on her podcast, Literaticast. Jenn has the most soothing voice, don't you agree? Anyhoo, check out our chat!
