Agent Jenna Pocius of Red Fox Literary has a background in children’s editorial and is also a children’s book author (Robyn Hood series, ABDO 2019). During her time as an editor she acquired everything from board books to YA novels, and many of her books have gone on to receive starred reviews and awards, including The Wonderful Habits of Rabbits by Douglas Florian and Small by Gina Perry. As an agent she’s had numerous exciting sales since joining Red Fox in July 2017, including the forthcoming picture books The Eternal Soldier written by Allison Crotzer Kimmel and illustrated by Rotem Teplow (little bee books, Summer 2019); This is a Sea Cow by Cassandra Federman (Albert Whitman, Fall 2019); The Longest Letsgoboy written by Derick Wilder and illustrated by Catia Chien (Chronicle, Spring 2021); and more.
Jenna is looking for character-driven novels with strong voice and world-building, picture books with STEM connections, and stories across age groups that highlight diversity and female empowerment. She is also a sucker for animal stories, especially dogs.
Jenna lives in Connecticut with her husband and their precious rescue pup.
