Jessica Spivey

For as long as I can remember, I have always had a book by my side. I graduated from the University of Minnesota Duluth with a Major in Theatre and a Minor in English, and joined VSA in 2016. I am absolutely thrilled to be surrounded by words every day. I enjoy all fiction, but am particularly drawn to literary fiction, magical realism, thrillers/mysteries, and anything high-concept. I do have a soft spot for short story collections, and am open to memoirs and nonfiction.

We are open to literary fiction, crime, mystery/thriller, non-fiction, memoir, YA/middle grade, and children's books.
