Jacqueline Flynn
Joelle Delbourgo Associates, Inc.
101 Park Street, Montclair, NJ 07042 US

Senior Literaray Agent, Jacqueline Flynn represents both fiction and non-fiction. She is particularly interested in authors who offer unique perspectives (esp. #ownvoices, #weneeddiversebooks), narrative non-fiction that sheds light on important issues, and experts with well-developed platforms who counter conventional wisdom and avoid one-size-fits all solutions. She uses her finely-developed editorial acumen to guide authors through the process of positioning their books for the marketplace, preparing proposals, and marketing their work. A former Executive Editor with two decades experience, she is also available to work with select authors as an editor on proposals and non-fiction manuscripts.

She holds a Bachelor of Arts from Bucknell University where she majored in International Relations and rowed on the Women’s Crew team. She is also a Hockey Mom, councilwoman, and avid paddler and hiker who lives in Northern New Jersey with her husband and two sons.

"Whether she’s giving notes on a book proposal or strategizing about an upcoming submission, Jacquie Flynn is savvy, direct and positive. She's helped me mull over projects through every stage, from early idea to polish drafts, and her advice has been transformative. She returns phone calls and always sounds cheerful and optimistic, even when the news isn’t. A wonderful agent whose efforts and deep publishing contacts have positioned my book to succeed." -- John Temple, AMERICAN PAIN and LAST LAWYER

"Jacqueline Flynn is smart, savvy, and instinctive. She has a sixth sense for discovering marketable stories, the editing expertise to polish them, and the publishing know-how to place them. On top of that, she's kind-hearted and protective of her clients' interests. I look forward to working with her for many years to come!" Jennifer Lynn Alvarez, THE GUARDIAN HERD: STARFIRE

"Jacquie's high energy and enthusiasm, not to mention her experience as both an editor and an agent, make her a strong advocate for her client's projects." Anne Greenwood Brown, LIES BENEATH and DEEP BETRAYAL

“A former editor, Jacquie Flynn is much more than a literary agent. She’s an insightful publishing pro who really understands writers’ interests and publishers’ needs. To put it simply, she ‘gets it.’ I’ve worked with Jacquie on six books now. She served as my editor on five trade-published business books and just sold my sixth book to a major publisher. Jacquie quickly identified ‘the right’ publisher and negotiated a terrific deal, which is just the beginning of a great things to come. I view Jacquie Flynn as my ‘publishing partner’ and friend, and I can’t wait to work with her—and the Joelle Delbourgo Associates team—again.” Nancy Flynn, HANDBOOK OF SOCIAL MEDIAL, THE E-POLICY HANDBOOK, and other nonfiction business books
