A round of applause for the gracious, super-speedy Ammi-Joan Paquette of the Erin Murphy Literary Agency!
Ammi-Joan Paquette joined the Erin Murphy Literary Agency as an associate agent in early 2009. Recent sales include Elliot and the Goblin War, by Jennifer Nielsen (Sourcebooks, 2010); Ophelia Live, by Michelle Ray (Little, Brown, 2011) and Maple T. Rittle and the Quest for a Miracle, by Erin E. Moulton (Philomel, 2011). Joan represents all forms of children’s and young adult literature. She looks at projects in most any genre, but is particularly drawn to tight plotting, a strong lyrical voice, and complex characters.
Joan's current special interests: middle-grade action/adventure; mysteries; humor. Food stories are always welcome. Cultural diversity and exotic settings are a plus.
