“Working with Jen Udden elevated my work. She has a keen eye for story, with an equally adept sense of the market. Her input exponentially increases a project’s chances in its publication.Having her in your corner is a treasure.”
-Maurice Broaddus, author of The Usual Suspects and the forthcoming Sweep of Stars
Jen has an insightful editorial eye and a thorough understanding of the marketplace, from commercial to literary. She brings a genuine love of story to her reading and so is able to authentically praise what’s working and identify what tweaks would make the work shine even more. She’s who I go to when I need an opinion I can trust.
-Bestselling and RITA Award winning author Jeffe Kennedy
Specializing in editorial assessments and developmental edits for novelists looking to take their craft to the next level. As a first reader, I give feedback based on my years of experience as a literary agent, with the ultimate goal of helping an author create the best version of their book.
Over my ten years in the industry, I built a list of authors who specialized in fiction of all stripes. I focused on genre fiction of all stripes, from innovative scifi to historical crime to meaty thrillers to epic fantasy - and beyond. As an "editorial" agent I worked with my authors to ensure that the work they shared with their publishers was the best it could possibly be.
