Quressa Robinson
Nelson Literary Agency

Quressa Robinson joined the Nelson Literary Agency in 2017 after working at a previous agency and as an editor for five years. She is originally from San Francisco, but has been living in New York City for over a decade. As a New York based agent, she is eager to build her MG, YA, and Adult lists. When not curled on her couch reading, she plays video games, enjoys too much TV–mostly Sailor Moon and Harry Potter (Slytherin!), eats delicious things, drinks champagne, hangs out with her very clever husband, and adds another “dramatic” color to her lipstick collection. Quressa is also a member of the 2017-2019 WNDB Walter Grant Committee and holds an MFA in Creative Writing: Fiction from Columbia University.

Books I wish I’d worked on: Quiet by Susan Cain, Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris, Lab Girl by Hope Jahren, The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas, Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon, The Mothers by Brit Bennett, The All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness, The Others series by Anne Bishop, Uprooted by Naomi Novik, You Can't Touch My Hair by Phoebe Robinson, The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, and Tell the Wolves I'm Home by Carol Rifka Brunt.
