Mandy Hubbard is a Tacoma-based literary agent for D4EO Literary, where she represents authors of middle-grade and YA fiction. She is also the author of Prada & Prejudice, You Wish, But I Love Him, and a number of other YA novels. In her blog, Mandy shares that she writes under her own name, as well as the pseudonym Amanda Grace. And that she grew up on a dairy farm in Enumclaw. And that after she first read a Regency romance, The Bride's Necklace, she was hooked on period literature and all the royal trimmings.
Mandy was a featured speaker during our Professional Series Meetings last year, discussing her take on trends in YA and middle-grade books, and she will be a stellar addition to our upcoming conference as a Roundtable faculty. As both a writer and an agent, she will certainly be able to view your work through two lenses.
