Rebecca Podos is a graduate of the MFA Writing, Literature and Publishing program at Emerson College. Her debut YA novel The Mystery of Hollow Places was published by Balzer+Bray/ HarperCollins, with her second novel, Like Water, forthcoming 10/17/17. Rebecca is interested exclusively in Young Adult and Middle Grade fiction; particularly books about complex female relationships, beautifully written contemporary, romance with more at stake than "will they/won't they," genre fiction with a strong focus on character, books featuring marginalized voices and cultures, and LGBTQIA+ stories across all genres.
She is thrilled to represent authors like Rin Chupeco (The Girl From the Well series, Sourcebooks; The Bone Witch series, Sourcebooks), Mackenzie Lee (This Monstrous Thing, HarperCollins; The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue, forthcoming from HarperCollins; Semper Augustus, forthcoming from Flatiron/ Macmillan), Ashley Herring Blake (Suffer Love, HMH; How to Make a Wish, HMH; Girl Made of Stars, forthcoming from HMH ), Kenneth Logan (True Letters from a Fictional Life, HarperCollins ), Sarah Nicolas (Dragons are People, Too, Entangled; Keeping Her Secret, Entangled), Emily Ross (Half in Love With Death, Merit Press), Lila Michaels (Now You See Her, forthcoming from HarperCollins), and Rebecca Christiansen (Maybe in Paris, forthcoming from Skyhorse) 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.
