Jessica Watterson joined SDLA in 2013 after graduating from UC Irvine.

A lifelong lover of books, she got her start in publishing as an indie book blogger which gives her a unique approach in her agenting style.

She’s drawn to authentic voices and fully realized characters that leap off of the page. In regards to romance, she loves themes that challenge societal status quo, while also delivering a beautiful and thoughtful romantic arc. For Women’s Fiction, Jessica particularly gravitates to stories that are feminist and accessible to the casual reader.

For YA, she’s drawn to fun and whimsical stories that are lighthearted. In Middle Grade and Picture Books, she loves stories that give readers a new window through which they can view their world. She currently only considers author/illustrated picture books.

Jessica is honored to represent an amazing list of bestselling and critically acclaimed authors that includes: Elena Armas, AK Mulford, Ella Maise, Rosie Danan, Angie Hockman, Alexa Martin, Lillie Vale, Katie Ruggle, and many more.
