agent :
Jennifer Williams
Gold Dust Literary Agency

I have a decade of diverse experience in publishing and public health. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a M.A. in History. I also hold dual B.A. in History and Religious Studies. As a trained historian, my favorite places include dusty archives, museums, libraries, and forgotten historic sites. I grew up in a multicultural household, and I enjoy learning about other cultures and traveling. I am disabled and I always have my cane and a book with me. I enjoy being outdoors, writing, and meeting new people.

I want to see every writer succeed, with or without me. My goal as an agent is to create a healthy partnership with authors and publishers. I want to foster open, honest communication. Let's succeed together.
