Conference faculty profile: Jennifer Rofé

Agent Jennifer Rofé is looking for "adorkable" heroes.

Jennifer Rofé, an agent with Andrea Brown Literary Agency, represents projects ranging from picture books to young adult, with middle grade being her soft spot. Some of her representative titles include: the middle grade novels The Year the Swallows Came Early by Kathryn Fitzmaurice and How Lamar’s Bad Prank Won A Bubba-Sized Trophy by Crystal Allen; the young adult novels Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass by Meg Medina, which won the Pura Belpré Award in 2014, and Finding Paris by Joy Preble; and the picture books 123 Versus ABC by Mike Boldt and The Cazuela That the Farm Maiden Stirred by Samantha Vamos. Jennifer also represents illustrators Eliza Wheeler, Wes Hargis, and Mary Peterson. Jennifer is always looking for fresh and distinct voices; smart, layered, and complex worlds; stories that simultaneously tug at her heartstrings and make her laugh out loud; and "adorkable" heroes.
