Rebecca Podos is a graduate of the MFA Writing, Literature and Publishing program at Emerson College. Her YA novels The Mystery of Hollow Places and Like Water are published by Balzer+Bray/ HarperCollins, with her third novel, Creatures Such as We, coming in 2019. Rebecca is interested exclusively in Young Adult and Middle Grade fiction. She loves everything from high fantasy to horror, contemporary to historical, and romance to magic realism, as long as it has a strong voice and memorable characters whose humanity shines through. OwnVoices Jewish books, stories exploring multi-generational relationships, novels featuring marginalized voices and cultures, and a sci-fi about a queer spaceship captain are high on her wish list!
She is thrilled to represent authors like Rin Chupeco (The Girl From the Well series; The Bone Witch series), Mackenzi Lee (This Monstrous Thing;The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue series; Bygone Badass Broads), Ashley Herring Blake (Suffer Love; How to Make a Wish; Girl Made of Stars; Ivy Aberdeen's Letter to the World ), Lisa Leighton and Laura Stropki (Now You See Her), Kenneth Logan (True Letters from a Fictional Life), London Shah (The Light at the Bottom of the World series, forthcoming from Hyperion), Rebecca Kim Wells (Shatter the Sky, forthcoming from Simon Teen), and Sonia Hartl (Have a Little Faith in Me, forthcoming from Page Street), among others.
Rebecca prefers email submissions consisting of a query letter and the first three chapters, and unfortunately is only able to respond to queries she is interested in pursuing. You can follow her on Twitter, and contact her at Rebecca@reesagency.com.
