The Andrea Brown Literary Agency, Inc. was founded in 1981. The agency focuses on representation for children’s book authors and illustrators. Laura Rennert is a Senior Agent and has been with the agency for ten years. Some of her clients include Jay Asher, Ellen Hopkins, and Catherine Ryan Hyde. In addition, she has recently sold major and significant deals to Simon & Schuster and Scholastic.

Ms. Rennert looks for novels with a strong, fresh voice and compelling narrative. According to the Andrea Brown Literary Agency website, she is interested in middle-grade, young adult, and crossover novels.

To query Ms. Rennert or any other agent at Andrea Brown, please see the agency’s website at www.andreabrownlit.com. Keep in mind the agency only accepts e-queries and only one agent may be queried.


Recently, we interviewed Jay Asher, author of THIRTEEN REASONS WHY (see July 13 posting). We are hosting our second book giveaway with a copy of the high concept, debut novel.

Please leave a comment on this post along with your name. The contest will close Friday, July 31, 2009. Good luck!




  1. I have been dying to read this book. It sounds so good and I’ve heard tons of good things about it. Count me in.


  2. Very nice agent spotlight. Andrea Brown Literary Agency is coming to my hometown on the 24th along with Jay Asher. I would give anything to go see them, but I have work. It’s very nice to read more into that agency.

  3. I’d love to win a copy of this book!

  4. Love the feature on Andrea Brown Literary Agency, Inc.

  5. I would love to win a copy of this! 🙂

  6. I need to read this book lol!

  7. I’ve checked this book out on Amazon, read the first few pages, and completely fell in love. If I don’t win, I would’ve bought it from Amazon, but with every penny of mine going into college, I haven’t been able to afford a new book for months.

    You people are awesome for giving away a free book, and whoever wins is a very lucky person.

  8. Great bite! A friend is repped by Laura and she is fantastic!

  9. Love this blog!! (Fingers crossed)

  10. Thanks for the agent profile, and I would love to win the book! 🙂
