Jessica Sinsheimer 200x300

Jessica Sinsheimer has been reading and campaigning for her favorite queries since 2004. Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, she went east for Sarah Lawrence College and stayed for the opportunity to read soon-to-be books for a living.

Now an agent at the Sarah Jane Freymann Literary Agency, Jessica is known for an openness to many genres–and for drinking far too much tea. Always on the lookout for new writers, whatever the age group, she tends to love picture books that examine our relationship to our world, how we interact with it and each other—all while having as much fun as possible. More diverse characters, please–especially those with power, agency, and happy endings. Jessica also loves nonhuman characters (she’s still looking for that story about a malfunctioning appliance) doing very human things.
